I am in the middle of a bumper crop of heirloom tomatoes and was looking for something fast and easy, using what I had on hand. WOW!!!!!! Was I shocked at how yummy this was. Sometimes I have been known to change up the recipes a bit, but on this one I didn't after reading reviews. Even the husband wanted to get his hands into it and add more oil, garlic and basil. I ended up having to ban him from the kitchen while I was making this dish. This was a great surprise!!!! We were fighting over the serving bowl during dinner!! THANKS!
Great recipe! made 4 servings and used about 10 romas to do it. Perfect recipe to use if your overwhelmed with tomatoes. I didn't have fresh basil, but the dried basil seemed to do the trick.(1tsp dry). I prolly could of used more basil, but I didn't want to over do it.
I used canned diced tomatoes, fresh basil, used the full amount of sugar and this was wonderful. It isn't supposed to be a garlic or parmesan dish. I made it just as stated and it was surprisingly wonderful! Oh, I did add leftover rotesserie chicken because we needed some protein for our main dish.
I give this 5 stars IF you use the finest of ingredients. I used my homegrown tomatoes & basil, fresh (as in not dried) pasta. I did add parmesan, but only because a friend just returned from Italy and gave me some that is fabulous. All in all, it was a simple and very tasty dish. I think I'd like it with a little roasted garlic too.
A friend gave me some basil and overripe tomatoes from her garden so I put them to good use in this recipe. I wanted to try the recipe as written without doctoring up with parmesan and garlic to make it Italian. I didn't measure anything--just pinched and poured. I think I used between 2 & 3 ounces of spaghetti. It was just right for one serving. This was absolutely delicious!
Fabulous! How easy, quick and delish can this be???????!!! Skipped the sugar because the tomatoes were sweet enough. Added roasted garlic! Used Angel hair pasta (Personal Favorite)!
I thought this was just ok. I made the recipe as written but after tasting added garlic and parmesan, which helped sway me a bit. I guess I'm not a fan of fresh tomato sauces either.
This was sooo nice!Very refreshing and soo tasty. Loved it! Thanks for sharing.
I used linguini in this recipe and added a little garlic and fresh parmesean. I thought it was quite tasty and quick. A great way to utilize my garden tomatoes and fresh herb garden. Thanks Thorsten for something light and fresh.
