My whole family liked this one. I used fresh tomatoes and had to skip the anchovies because DH wont eat them. Came out great, thanks for posting
This is an easy and quick recipe to make. I used rotini pasta. I added a bit of hot sauce for my taste. I also sprinkled some parmesan cheese over it. Made a great meal. Thanks boomoo.
