    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    I adopted this recipe from Zaar some time ago and finally got round to trying it myself. It's quick and simple and full of fresh flavours. I prefer using basil but the original recipe stated parsley so I left it here for you to choose. Try adding some sliced black olives, fried or marinated mushrooms or sun blush tomatoes at the end.

      I cooked the garlic very slowly and it got very mellow and yummy. My favorite way to have pasta. Not a very good thing to cook for a date tho, lol. I added mushrooms the last time I made it, with great results.

      Tomato sauce has its moments but it is usually way too thick (people add paste, no wonder). I usually add that by adding generous amounts of red wine. The other thing I add is a 1/2 can of artichoke hearts. Hmm. <br/><br/>They worked in this too. I also added salt, pepper and a little oregano. But what seemed to provide the most flavor to this was the Parmesan.

      My boyfriend hates tomatoes, so he doesn't typically like spaghetti. So I tried making this recipe instead. He loves greesy foods. So he loved this recipe. It is a very plain tasting. So what you should do to help it out is add a meat, and salt and pepper. It has alot of butter, so I would use less buter and less olive oil. I will be making this again.
