    Both DH and I really like this recipe. It's so easy to put together on a minutes notice and tasted so fresh with a great blend of flavors. I did have to make some changes because of what I could find available here - Used dried basal and bow tie pasta, then I have to admit to DH insisting on adding ground round as he could not think of a pasta without it - no matter WHAT I tried to convince him of it not needing it and added a can of Italian flavored stewed tomatoes (again at DH's insistane). Hee, Hee - you should have seen me trying to explain to him why it looked PINK. However; even with all the changes it came out great - so fresh tasting. Served with a green salad and truly enjoyed. It did make a lot of sauce for the 2 of us so I've frozen some and can't wait to see if that works as it'll be nice to have it to just pull out when we want.

    Delicious :) I did have to make some tomato sauce first, using canned tomatoes, a finely minced onion, a touch of sugar and some dried herbs, but that was quickly done, I added my own sun-dried tomatoes, and grabbed a handful of basil from the garden. I served over spaghetti since we've had penne several times recently, just as nice :) Thank you for a lovely recipe, made for PRMR tag game.

    WOW! This was so fast to do. I used some home canned tomato sauce and this was an excellent dish! Made for ZWT7.
