Well this was just wonderful! I didn't expect anything sensational from such simple ingredients, but the more we ate the more we loved it. I thought the basil and parsley amounts looked small for fresh herbs, so I used the dried herbs instead (same amounts.) It was just right, and I served it with spelt rotini. This recipe is now on my "make often" list. Thanks Mirj!
Made this for supper the other night. My DH and I loved it. The only addition was a second clove of garlic. Spicy and hot enough for us. This was really great and we will have this again. Thanks!!
This was really good. It was very easy to prepare and everyone liked it. I would take it easy on the red pepper flakes if you don't like things spicy. I loved it but my kids thought it was a little hot.
This was yummy. I also tossed in some chunks of buffalo mozzarella. Ummmm yummy. Thanks for the recipe.
FINALLY, after a 101 plans, I got around to making pasta today. This is the FIRST pasta recipe I've made in my life! As I was making pasta for the first time, I used only 500gms. of penne pasta. I used 1 small onion, 1 clove garlic, 1 tbsp. oil, 3 pinches of salt to cook the pasta, 1 additional tsp. of salt in step 2, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. dried basil, 1/4 tsp. dried oregano, 1/4 tsp. red chilli powder as a substitute for red pepper flakes as we don't use the latter in our daily cooking and so I didn't have it on hand and 1/4 tsp. chopped fresh parsley. I do not use canned tomatoes, so, I peeled and chopped up 4 fresh tomatoes. Next time, I'll use atleast 6 tomatoes for the same qty. of pasta. I drizzled out of the bottle, a generous amount of tomato sauce to make this saucey while cooking the pasta in the spices! It was really delicious! At the end, I garnished it with finely chopped Kraft cheese(I used 3 slices). THANK YOU so much for the recipe!
Simple but yet so flavorful with a very nice kick from the crushed red pepper. I mixed half the tomato sauce with the pasta and used the remaining half to top the individual servings. I didn't have any parmesan cheese but used shredded mozzarella cheese liberally sprinkled over the top of each serving. Added a salad and garlic bread for a great meal. Thanks!
I did not like tomatoey sauces until recently. This one helped my "new" cause along nicely. It was terrific just as is (with extra garlic though). This would be good with rotini as well (lots of ridges to catch the sauce) Thanks Mirjam.
I thought this was pretty good, but it was a bit too "oniony" (if that is even a word!!) for my taste. I think I will add a lot less onion next time! I really liked how spicy it was though!
This was very good and extremely easy for a weekday meal. It's in my repeat file. Thanks Mirjam, for another keeper!
Made this last night and got a thumbs up from my husband and son. The red pepper flakes make it a nice change from most pasta sauces. I served it with low fat Red Lobster biscuits and a salad.
