    So, so good! I used 3 cloves of garlic and added a pinch of red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. A delicious dinner with minimal effort - thank you so much for sharing!

    We made this with muti-colored bow tie pasta and with the toasted pine nuts for my brother's wedding. It was a hit!

    Delicious - I used whole wheat noodles, Greek Feta cheese and sundried Tomatoes in oil. I reccommend having all the ingredients ready in bowls so you can add it all quickly to the hot Pasta. After first serving I popped the pasta into a medium hot oven and it was great for seconds. I think it may be a good idea after adding the pasta to the cheese etc pop it into the oven to get warmed through & hot Enjoyed by all- Thanks Tish!


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
