3 stars...Made this dish tonight with our dinner...it was good, though it seemed like it needed something to spice it up. Maybe it's just me and DH, I have been cooking some REALLY spicy things lately...I would try this again, but would add additional spice or pepper. Thanks for the recipe ~Nimz~.

Very nice dish. I used Barilla Plus Whole Grain Penne. I used cilantro as suggested by a previous reviewer only because I had some cilantro that was at the use-it-or-lose it stage. I added a little grated Asiago cheese to the cilantro and garlic in the food processor. I also cut the 1 1/4 cups oil down to 3/4 cups and it was plenty. Once prepared, I divided in half and added some sausages and additional cheese sauce to make a heartier lunch for DH and kids, leaving the other half as-is for me. Thanks for the recipe - very versatile and has many flavor possibilities!

What a wonderful dish Nimz. We really enjoyed this tasty tasty pasta. The dish was alive with lovely textures and fresh flavours. I included strips of sweet onion and I used red peppers, and green olives, as that was what I had on hand. The sweetness of the vegetables really complimented the pasta, olives and delicious basil sauce. Thanks so much for sharing.

Delicious. I was concerned this might taste as though it was missing something but that wasn't the case. It was perfect as written and didn't need a thing.
