  1. Combine tomatoes, garlic, olives, basil, olive oil, and pepperoncinis. Stir together and allow to marinate as long as you have time for; overnight is best, although it's fine to eat right away too.
  2. Cook pasta according to the package directions; drain. Toss with sauce and serve.

This is a great weekday dinner recipe. The flavors are really delicious and, if you have any leftovers, this dish gets even better with time.

1 lb of pasta was way too much in my opinion. like the combo of ingredients but with all that pasta it was very bland. might make it again with 1/2 lb.

I made this pasta dish for dinner last night and although I only had three hours to marinate it, it was still great. I substituted half of the pasta shells with beef stuffed ravioli and it was ...

Prepared this the night before to let the tomatoes marinate then used it over brown rice and chicken the next night. Awesome! The flavors added a welcome flavor to rather bland brown rice and gr...

Love it! I did make a few slight adjustments to suit our tastes - we wanted warm, spicy pasta so I subbed 2 cans of diced tomatoes for the chopped, reduced the oil, increased the pepperoncini an...

very good! next time i will add fresh mozzarella.

This is a delectable pasta dish, but is better if there are no children to be fed.
