      This was very easy to make and had a very fresh taste that I enjoyed. I used penne because it was what I had to hand and I also used canned tomatoes instead of fresh. I doubled the recipe to feed out hungry tummies and that worked out great too. For dietary reasons, I skipped the oil and used a non-fat cooking spray and splashes of water to 'fry' the onions and I also used splenda instead of sugar with no issues at all. Made for ZWT4.

      Excellent recipe! I don't have a food processor so just crushed the tomatoes by hand. Used 2 cloves of garlic. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

      Thank you for your great, quick pasta recipe! We will make again. Unfortunately I used diced toms. with skins on, so it kinda ruined the texture for us. I think next time too, I'll add a tiny bit more olive oil and 1/2 tsp less basil. All in all a good pasta. it's a keeper!
