Tomato Spiral Toss

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"'When my husband and I don't have a lot of time, we fix this pleasing pasta dish,' remarks Nicole Lynch of Powell River, British Columbia. It's easy to prepare...and easy on the pocketbook at 42 cents a serving. The price comes down even more if you use homegrown tomatoes from your garden."

Does not make very much. I doubled the amount of pasta. Next time I will cut back on the oil as it is way to much.

Good as a side dish, especially with garden ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. I added the tomato mixture to the hot pasta and heated slightly.

This recipe was o.k. way to much oil! and even dried herbs taste better when they are sautéd a little.
