For best results, use the freshest ingredients available. This recipe calls for less oil for a healthier pasta dish. Sometimes I drizzle lightly with balsamic vinager. Bon Appetit, May 1997

This recipe incorporates all my favourite flavours so I loved it! I used baby plum tomatoes and light mozzarella. Beautiful summer meal- thanks for sharing it!

Oh my gosh!! I used to make this dish years and years ago and loved it! I forgot all about it until I saw your recipe. Thanks, can't wait to make it again!

Wow! We loved this recipe. Used garden tomatoes ... what a difference. I also used balsamic vinegar in place of the red wine vinegar. Great flavor!
