Wow! This was amazingly tasty. My daughter made this for a pre-race dinner prior to the San Fran Women's Nike Half Marathon. I made a meaty version for the meat lovers but this veggie version was gone first! It was absolutely delicious. We served it over steamed spaghetti quash for those that wanted a healthier low-glycemic meal.
I made this for dinner tonight and it was very well received. Changes I made were to use chilli infused oil, and I added a couple of fresh chillis to the garlic. I also added some pasta water to the "sauce" mix and a little butter to the cooked pasta. Thanks for a tasty recipe!
Fast, delicious, healthy, and a great way to use summer garden produce! We loved it. Thank you.
