I cut this out of a magazine a LONG time ago and it's one of my husband and I's favorite stand-by dishes! Don't be afraid of the garlic. The roasting mellows it out. I usually add even more than stated and he and I fight over every last one of them.

This was awesome. Tossed it with Basmati rice instead of pasta. This is a "company's coming" recipe.

Wow, this was good. I also roasted additional garlic cloves and increased the heat factor. Served over basmati rice with shitake mushrooms. Thanks for posting!
