Deliciously simple. Made for dinner tonite. Used elephant garlic as it is a bit more mild and when roasted or sauteed is sweeter. Used diced tomatoes that were Contadina brand that had burgendy wine in it. So very good and very simple. Served of organic spelt spaghetti. Delicious flavor, light, but very substantial. Thanks for sharing.
