    This really is fabulous. I have made this recipe many, many times, ever since I saw Giada make it on one of her shows. It's very simple and quick to make, too. Always a hit.

    I was about to post this recipe myself but found they you already had. I LOVE this dish. It's so simple yet delish. Thanks for saving me the work of having to post it myself.

    This is an easy and delicious vegetarian pasta dish. DH and I make it almost every week as a quick dinner using tomatoes and basil from our garden. We'd like to jazz it up a little by increasing the tomatoes, adding a little pasta water and mussels, clams or shrimp, so we'll let you know how it is.

    This was fantastic! I used the little pearl fresh morzerella instead of cubing it up and the presentation for Easter was fabulous...
