    Hey, me and my partner make this but have found that to make it a meal with a little more bite we have added/changed some things: - Way more garlic. (5 cloves, some minced, some sliced) - About a pound of spicy sausage (cooked first and strained to let the grease drain, some grease left in pan for garlic) --> Add red pepper flake to the meat for an extra kick - About 10-15 kalmata olives cut into 4ths and added with tomatoes - 5 tomatoes instead of 4 - A whole packet of linguini cooked al denté Everything else is the same. This is not Carrabba's recipe but it's a really tasty dish! Serves about 6.

    I have been making this dish for years. I use fresh Roma tomatoes. It makes a big difference. Fresher tasting. I also add chopped onion and bell pepper. We added shrimp tonight and it was fabulous.

    I have made this twice and both times I've doubled it. I also use a 28oz can of San Marzano plum tomatoes with most of the juices drained. I haven't had enough fresh basil on hand so I used freeze dried. My daughter's favorite dish at Carrabba's and she said it's perfect! One of the easiest meals I've ever made that didn't come out of a box or a bag!

    This is one of my FAVORITE dishes. I worked as a manager for Carrabba's for nearly 10 years. You have the recipe fairly accurate but you forgot one of the main ingredients. Rough chop about 8 basil leaves and add them at the very last minute to flavor the sauce. It makes a huge difference. I will also suggest using white pepper instead of black and use canned, whole Italian plum tomatoes and crush them in the sauce yourself. Enjoy this light and fabulous meal.
