Simple and delicious, excellent mid-week meal. I really liked the creamy addition of mascarpone. This would be lovely with any pasta, I stuck to the traditional spaghetti. Oh,and I used canned tomatoes that already had basil and oregano added, so I didn't add extra dried herbs. Thanks for sharing a good recipe, ellie! Made for I Recommend tag game
