Recipe by Bec6206

Serve hot over freshly-cooked pasta. Note: Use only a high-quality olive oil and do not substitute vegetable or peanut oil. If the sauce is too thick, thin with a little of the pasta cooking water. Store any leftover sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
