    Simple, superfast, nicely balanced. Served portions of fettuccine topped with three pan-seared scallops. Easy weeknight supper.

    This recipe was easy and so delicious! I used the fresh pasta and picked tomatoes and basil from my garden. I will definitely make it again.

    This was a great starter recipe. I added capers and marinated artichoke hearts for a little more flavor. It was great and I will definitely make again.

    This is a fabulous and flavorful recipe. Very easy to prepare and I agree that it's a great starter recipe as well to add all kinds of additions to. Sort of a fridge cleaning starter recipe. Definitely will make again.

    This makes such a clean, delicious sauce. I've been adding some kind of meat to it for some protein and to make it more hearty, but the base itself is lovely. So easy to make and very flavorful.

    THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!! Couldn't stop eating it! Thank you. Yes, double the sauce.

    This is ABSOLUTELY delicious!! I've made something similar to this on my own, but with roma tomatoes, however, I like this one much better. The cherry tomatoes add a sweetness to the sauce. I didn't think that the sauce would cover all of the pasta but it did. I am definitely making this again.

    This was a very boring recipe and I will not make this again. Definitely needs additional ingredients. The ingredients included in this recipe consisted of the right amount of those ingredients but it just needs alot of additional things.

    I liked the fresh basil and cherry tomatoes but there wasn't enough sauce for us. The next time I'll add more olive oil, more tomotoes, some chili flakes, chopped olives and a little less garlic. Overall, very good.

    Good recipe. I added some minced sauteed onions in the sauce which really kicked up the flavor. Also added about 1/4 cup of canned tomato sauce which gave the sauce a little more volume. Yum!

    Easy, quick, good. Great way to use up an abundance of cherry tomatoes for later in summer when the plants are going crazy!

    I made this last night for two with ingredients I had on hand which were a beefsteak tomato, arugula in place of basil (I used dried basil as well) and whole wheat rotini pasta. I always have a jar of minced garlic in the fridge so that was no problem and had to use the 'fake' grated parm, but added goat cheese since I had it and I feel it makes everything taste superb. =] I added a bit of 4 cheese pasta sauce from a jar in case there wasn't enough sauce like other reviewers mentioned (I kind of eyeballed most of the ingredients). I did have the fresh ground pepper and added cayenne pepper flakes for spice. I also added pieces of a rotisserie chicken that we had from the night before for protein. I supposed I could make it for company, but it felt like good comfort food to me. Very easy and tasty; hubby concurs!

    This recipe is really quick and easy. It took more time for my noodles to cook than to make the sauce. I was a little nervous about the amount of garlic, but the taste was thankfully not overwhelmed. Next time I may try just a tad less. Also I used grape tomatoes since I had some on hand, rather than cherry tomatoes. Would make again.

    Delicious!!! Did not change a thing. I like garlicky recipes without heavy sauces.

    Loved it! Helped use up grape tomatoes from the garden. My 90-year old dad gobbled it up as did my husband. Definitely will make it again. We were fine with the ratio of sauce to pasta. I cut the salt in half and used coarsely grated cheese.

    My six-year old, tomato hating son, scarfed this down and asked for seconds. Will make again and again and again...

    Fantastic! served it next to broiled zucchini ( which I sprinkled with olive oil and little of dried oregano) paired it with white whine. My son who just likes junk food from can or bags, loved it. Little did he know all ingridients are fresh!
