This was really good! We used gluten free noodles, so I added a little more oil then called for. Also, went with the suggestion to add extra garlic. <br/>My family loved it! Severed it with a small salad and roasted asparagus. Will be adding this to our regular meal rotation.

GREAT! Made this as a side dish. I used roma's that I quartered and increased the garlic to 7. I used 3/4 pound of pasta and used Romano cheese. YUM!

Yumm! I totally understand why this is a 5 star dish!!! I do love bruschetta so I knew I would probably love this and I did. I just heated, diced, and tossed in pre-cooked Trader Joe's jalapeno spicy sausage for a little protein fresh basil is best here and I did need to add a little pasta water to moisten it up a bit at the end. Easy and tasty weeknight meal w/leftovers for lunch thanks Shiraz!!

This is a good, basic dish. I honestly don't understand all the 5 star reviews though - that is the reason I gave a 3. It's good, but not spectacular.

This was so good. We all enjoyed this! The fresh basil is key in this recipe. Simply delicious. Thanks.

This was delicious! I made this on Friday night and the leftovers were gone before the weekend was over. I altered it just a tad, but it's still the same basic recipe: one lb of angel hair pasta; seven large, fresh plum tomatoes; four extra-large garlic cloves; half a teaspoon of red pepper; and instead of measuring out the olive oil, I coated the bottom of my pan. My husband is a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy, but even he thought the pasta was delicious - without any meat. Excellent and thanks for sharing!

Made this tonight for dinner, and it was a huge hit! I used whole wheat penne, and a little under a full pound of it (because that brand comes in a smaller size box); also doubled up on the garlic because we *love* garlic, and omitted the parmesan because we didn't have any. This was wonderful! So easy, too! We tried it topped with some spinkled feta, but decided that the feta actually detracted from the rest of the dish, so next time we will keep it cheese-free, or maybe use a sprinkle of mozzarella. We've also decided that leftovers will make a great cold salad. YUM! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! This is very close to one of my favorite's at Carrabba's. It did have a little too much garlic for our tastes and I reduced the red pepper to 1/4 tsp which was perfect for us. I also used regular tomatoes and angelhair pasta because I had those on hand.
