      Great way to use up tomatoes, easy for a weeknight meal, and nice fresh Mediterranean flavor. I enjoyed with goat cheese and used the optional capers. Thanks!

      I forgot to add the cheese as well. Didn't miss it a bit. I think this is one of those recipes that ought to be only made in summer when tomatoes and basil are fresh. Making fresh pasta would send this recipe right over the top. It was good hot, room temperature and cold.

      Outstandingly delicious!! Had this two nights in a row 'cuz Thor couldn't get enough of it. Had to sub regular black olives as I had no Kalamata. This is just personal taste but I didn't think the parmesan cheese added anything to this dish. Usually, when I taste a pasta dish and it is delicious adding parmesan makes it even more delicious. Not the case this time. Thank You for posting.
