Oh yum! This was a tasty, easy recipe that made for a lovely summer supper. I subbed bow-tie pasta instead of linguini. After 8 years of being posted, I'm glad I found it - thanks, Paula!
Wow! This dish is one of the reasons why I could eat pasta everyday. I misread the ingredients, thought it was 1-2 tsps of crushed red pepper, so I used 1 teaspoon instead of 1/2. Turned out great! Can't wait to try this with fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Made for ZWT5
Lovely Mediterranean flavored pasta with all my favourite things in it. Yum!
