Farfalle With Tomato Herb Sauce

Total Time

Since I began seriously experimenting with italian food, this is the sauce I was hoping to find. The addition of the chicken broth, creates a lighter tomato based sauce. The tomato complements the rest of the flavors rather than overwhelming them. Give it a try if you're looking for something different than your typical herb sauce. Another nice addition to this would be adding a few mussels to the sauce. It's a very traditional recipe. Found on the Italian Trade Commission's website.

This very simple recipe made a wonderfully quick and flavoursome dinner dish. I had to sub penne for farfalle, another time I'll use farfalle which really would be nice with this. I couldn't find a use for the butter ..... ? So I left it out :) Ideal for a substantial midweek dinner, excellent with hot crispy garlic bread, a lovely recipe, thanks for sharing, OwlMonkey!
