Spaghettini With Checca Sauce

"I saw this recipe on Everyday Italian and simply had to try it right away! I am so glad I did too, because it was fabulous! It is a no cook sauce and all the ingredients are fresh, so easy and so light you will hardly believe it! I can easily see this sauce use on bruchetta, or as an accompiment served with crackers. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do!"

    This was good. When I make this again, I think I'll only do two cloves of garlic, though.

    No cook pasta sauce full of goodness.

    My BF & his son would give this a thousand stars if they could! They both thought it absolutely delicious. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden; I don't have a food processor, so just diced everything small. I on the other hand would give it 4 stars. Maybe next time (and there will be a next time if I know what's good for me) I will saute the garlic for just a bit. I think that would make it better for me by cutting down on the harshness of the raw garlic. It could be that my garlic was extra strong although it didn't seem to bother the BF & son the least little bit!

    This was great! I will be making it again. Probably this weekend! I didn't have any cherry tomatoes so I just used regular grocery store tomatoes. I can't wait to try it once I have fresh ones from the garden. Thanks for sharing!

    This was absolutely delicious. It was quick and easy and the flavor was out of this world.
