This is a fresh, light meal that is great for the warmer times of year. The sauce is not thick or heavy but coats the pasta for an even flavour. The choice of herbs here is merely what I have found to work well but please adjust to your family's tastes! The herbs should be fresh though- dried herbs will not give the same result. The fresh basil really brings out the flavours in this dish. UPDATE: In light of a review, I have tried this dish again and increased the liquid ingredients in the recipe to provide more sauce. It is important in this recipe to include the stock cube as there is something in it that thickens the sauce. If you must leave it out, add an alternative thickening agent.
