This recipe is from Foodland Ontario and I love to make it when my garden is full of delicious tomatoes. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

This was a fantastic recipe! I love pasta! The sauce was so simple and delicious! The red pepper flakes were optional, but I put some in the sauce and on top. I love spicy food. On the side, I served garlic bread..... for Spring PAC 2010.
