    Heartsong's Note:

    This is an incredibly easy, incredibly delicious dish. It is a takeoff from the Olive Garden original. I like more garlic, more basil, and less oil than their recipe calls for, but you can go to their website and get the original. This is a real kid pleaser. If they hate tomatoes, leave them out. It's still delicious. I wanted to add that you almost can't put too much basil in this. I made this again last night and probably used 40 large basil leaves or more, and some fresh parsley that my son picked by mistake. I did note that when I used 6 cloves of garlic, they were small to medium cloves. When they were large, I used only 4. Garlic is a matter of preference, though and you may love 6 large cloves. You can also increase the amount of fresh tomato, but do increase your garlic in proportion. It always amazes me that this dish is so fast and sooooooooooooooo delicious!

      Um...YUM! We had what seemed like a million roma tomatoes to use, and this was the perfect recipe for it! I opted to blend the ingredients to make a semi-pesto. Simply delicious!

      Made this tonight - and it really does taste exactly like the Olive Garden version! This is my favorite dish at OG and I was skeptical if it could be recreated - it was perfect. The recipe is big - I made it in half and there was a lot. I made the tomato mix ahead of time and gave it time to sit and let the flavors blend. I agree with the comment that you cannot overdo it on basil, and I salted it generously too. I made it with Angel Hair like the original and it was awesome. Really simple to make and delicious.

      We LOVED this. I added about a cup of baby spinach leaves to it to increase the protein and just chopped them in the food processor with the rest. Thanks Heartsong!
