A simple dish that is wonderfully fresh tasting and bursting with flavor. I used vine-ripened tomatoes and omitted the parsley, so I upped the basil. I didn't need to add the cooking water because there was plenty of liquid in the sauce.

I made a few changes to the recipe--first cut a few cloves of garlic in half and let them sit in the olive oil for awhile. I didn't add vinegar but did add fresh oregano rather than basil. Thought the result was very tasty and so quick and easy.
