I really enjoyed making this simple, garlicky recipe with my boyfriend, even though my family was complaining about the strong garlic smell (it's hard to avoid that with six pressed cloves but it pays off in the sauce. :D) I would also cutting down the oil to about 1/3 or a 1/4 of a cup to keep the sauce from getting greasy. We actually had a little gaff, spilling half of the crushed tomatoes in the sink, so we subbed in some cilantro salsa and the results were great! Haha. Thanks for the family recipe!

Okay here's the deal, would someone please come to TEXAS (Yeah that's right, God bless TEXAS!) and slap we awake? After stuffing myself with this pasta, it literally KNOCKED me out I tell ya'!! I was totally blown away with this pasta and you will be too! There really is NOT one definitive word to describe this pasta recipe. Awesome, fantastic, superb, heaven, freakin' A, wow, yum-oh, killer, great, are actually too weak of words to use. All I know is next time (and there will be plenty of more times) I'm going to make this recipe, I'll be quadrupling it & I DARE anyone come near me to get a taste! Stay back I say. Angie you actually get 1G of stars from me!

Good stuff! Family loved it...no one could kiss anyone for a little while with all the garlic, but it didn't matter!!! We really enjoyed the dish. I did cut back on the olive oil a litte also, and used garlic infused olive oil. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

This made for an excellent evening meal. Needing to make this 'Heart Smart' I did cut back on the oil. So easy to make, simmering made for old fashioned taste. No left overs! Can't wait to be trying this using fresh basil. Thank you for sharing.

This had a good flavor, but I was confused about the 1/3 cup olive oil. I guess it was to keep the tomatoes from sticking. Anyway, I decided to use my immersion blender at the end, and for some strange reason, it turned the sauce orange. Also, I reduced the amount of salt to 1/2 tsp.But it was still good.
