Good dish. I made half a recipe and used full 29 oz. can puree as I had no tomatoes. Used bow tie pasta and was good,

Fanstastic pasta dish! I cut the recipe in half and left out the onions, otherwise made as specified. This had such a rich and flavorful sauce and I loved all that basil! Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
