"This was easy and pretty darn good, I think I'd prefer the basil cut smaller since a whole strip is a bit overpowering in one bite, for my taste. It did have a very nice presentation. I didn't add salt or pepper at the end, since my husband is on sodium restrictions, but I didn't really miss it. I had put some grated romano on the table as an optional topping, but no one chose to use it. I used dried thyme because I had no fresh. I think the olive oil can be cut way back, I used only about 1 tsp of a Roasted Garlic olive oil and the finished dish was not dry as though it actually needed more oil. I had closer to 3T pine nuts, but that worked fine. I served it as a side dish with calamari piccata, asparagus and a fruit salad. I will be sure to make this again when I have fresh basil on hand!"
"This was a very easy, fresh tasting summery pasta dish. I used organic tomatoes from the local farmer's market and basil from my garden. My grandmother and I enjoyed this for lunch today. In our case, it served two versus four. Thanks for posting."
"awesome. I did everything as written, except I didn't use thyme. Delicious!"
"This was AWESOME! So summery, so quick just over the top good! Used all fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden...and topped with feta cheese! This is a GREAT way to use up your tomatoes! THANKS for sharing! Made for photo tag!"
