Basic simple recipe that can be tweaked to ones tastes. For a nice fish dish I added some scallops, mushrooms, diced red peppers, parsley and Mrs. Dash citrus seasoning. Goes well with any type of pasta. Read More

This was sooooo simple...and crazy delicious! I used 5 cloves of garlic instead of 2. I used Classico sauce instead of Barilla. I did not add the fresh basil, only because I didn't have any on hand. Don't FORGET to add the pepper flakes. They gave the sauce a little zing...and I do mean little. I served this over rigato pasta with steamed broccolli and garlic bread with cheese. Read More
