This was sooooo good. Made some modifications; maybe used a tablespoon of oil to sauté the garlic, added the tomatoes (did half the amount of tomatoes as I was the only one eating...same amt. of garlic and red pepper though), then added about 1/4 cup of white wine, fresh rosemary and oregano. Such a fresh flavor. I'm a cheese addict too, but didn't think it needed the heaviness, so left that off...didn't miss it! Will make this again for sure!! (reserve 5 stars for company worthy dishes...might serve this to company (esp. vegetarian), but this is a SOLID 4 star!) oh...served over campanelle pasta..perfect pairing.
I made this sauce tonight with my abundance of cherry tomatoes from the garden. I followed the recipe exactly and when I thought it was ready, it was still very oily. I added more tomatoes, then more, then more and that seemed to make it a bit less oily, but I was not thrilled with how it turned out. I admit, I am still learning my way around the kitchen, so perhaps there is an addition that I could have added to balance the oil flavor? I expected a more savory sauce, but I found the taste to be a bit "sharp/tangy". I decided to put it into an container and try it again the next day and see if the flavors blend a bit more. I don't think I would make it again and I think I'll leave all those tomatoes for cold salads instead!
I picked cherry tomatoes yesterday & was just going to mix with green onions , garlic and serve cold. Being the type of person that loves to experiment with food I made this wonderful recipe with pasta. I sautéed garlic, shallots in olive oil & butter.. I halved half of the tomatoes, left the rest whole & sauted them all. I added white wine, parsley, salt & pepper & cooked till the tomatoes burst. I added cooked pasta & grated fresh Parmesan cheese, tossed & came out with a fresh, full of flavor dish. This will be a go to recipe for years to come. The best part is that if only cost pennies to make & it yielded enough to feed 6. I suffer from colon cancer & as much as I enjoy cooking, my appetite has been 0. I'm in remission & know I should eat more healthy food. This is something that appeals to me & something I know my family is going to love. Food doesn't have to be bland or boring while trying to eat healthy. 😊 doesn't sound to complicated, but full of flavor. Especially picking your own vegetables. Thanks to Steve for allowing me to pick from his garden. 😊
So simple and light - so delicious!! My husband loves it and keeps asking me to make it again and again and so I do!!
