Linguini Alla Cecca

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Moody

This is a light, summery dinner with little preparation involved, and easy clean up. It came from an extremely old issue of Shape magazine (sorry, can't recall which issue!).

I followed this loosely and it came out excellent. I marinated as directed then just before the pasta was ready, I sauteed extra garlic in a skillet with extra olive oil, a little butter, and some crushed red pepper, then added a little dry sherry and reduced, then added all of the marinating tomato mixture. Once that was hot, I added the almost done pasta along with a little of the pasta water and tossed over medium-high heat until it was good and bubbly. Grated a little parmesan over the final result and served. Delicioso! Thanks.
