Yummm! This recipe was easy and quick to make. Try it you'll love it. Btw, it tasted just as good cold for lunch the next day.

This is very good. I didn't have fresh basil so I used dry and it was still very good.

Great! I did use fresh basil and doubled(ish) the recipe. I used red pepper bc yellow peppers are inhibitingly expensive around here and bow-ties rather than ziti. Great fresh flavor and very modern tasting- you're right, very much like something you'd expect to pay lots of $ for in a trendy restaurant. I think that it would benefit, however, from the addition of some smoked mozzarella.
