This is really good. It was easy to make. And was a quick meal. I used your Dad's Cocktail Sauce .The 2 went really well together. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Spring 09
Absoultely TDF! I did vary from the recipe a lttle to add a "last of the summer tomato" for color and more garlic. Otherwise, everything as written. Made 1/2 again as much sauce for the crusty bread served and mixed in the pasta before serving. Yumbo, Chef Mene1!!!!!!!This was delicious. (He's my adopted chef of Fall 06 ya know!)
