"Light and zesty pasta dish. The mint and basil blend nicely for a satisfying dining experience. You be the judge of the amount of jalapeño peppers to add. Serve with crisp side salad and Italian bread."

"WOW! This was really a delicious meal! Thanks!<br/>The mint addition made this dish really special for us!<br/>I used turkish peppers (red, long and only light hot) as this is what I have here.<br/>I had small roma tomatos, I seeded and revemoved the inner acid liquid before cutting them.<br/>I will make this for sure again and I can really recommend it."
"Hi Paula, G! This is incredible! It had a bit of spiciness from the 1 pepper I added and the fresh basil and mint added something very earthy to this dish. Excellent flavor, and my meat-eating husband thought it was great too. We served with a side salad for a wonderful meal. Oh, I did add a pinch of course ground pepper, garlic, and italian seasoning. Though, it wasn't required. Thanks, we'll have this often!"
"We just loved this simple, easy to put together dish. The freshness of the tomatoes paired with the heat of the jalepenos went together fantastically. I also tossed in some fresh asparagus sliced very thin that I had on hand. Even my meat loving DH loved it! Thanks for a terrific dish! Made for ZWT 3 :)"
"A very good pasta dish! Light and tasty! I used linguini and halfed the recipe. Its more like a salad dish, very healthy! Next time I thinking of adding caper or olives? Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe, PaulaG!"
"Oh boy, this was really good. I chilled it overnight so I could enjoy it today for lunch. Really fresh. Had a nice glass of iced tea with it. Perfect!"
"This was a very colourful & refreshing change from standard spaghetti sauce - the basil/mint (fresh from our garden) combo was delish! Our Roma tomatoes were pretty sad looking this year so I used the regular type. I also used a mix of plain & spinach flavoured egg noodles which increased the eye appeal. Thanx Paula!"
"This is great, I add some cooked prawns and fine chopped garlic, and parmesan cheese. Really good."
"This is great ! You are so right about the basil/mint combination, and I would caution anybody who is considering making this but leaving out the mint not to do it! It is really such a lovely flavor. Thanks for posting."
