I followed the recipe but cut the vinegar down to about 2T. I found it pretty bland to make as is. Maybe adding sun dried tomatoes or mushrooms would have helped, but with the amount of ingredients, I expected the flavors to "pop" which they didn't. Not one I would repeat.
Angel Hair Pasta Delight
When I created this recipe, I had recently discovered Asiago cheese and loved the flavor. It really makes a difference when added to a simple dish, and a little goes a long way.
