    I saw you mention this on facebook, and I’ve been waiting for you to post it – it looks just as good as you said it was. Definitely on my list of recipes to try soon!

  2. Asmita says:

    Yummy! Will have to try this out soon.

    Sorry – Bebe – I know it took me an extra day!

    Thanks, Chef.

    Asmita – thanks for stopping by – please come back and tell me how it goes for you!

    This does look really good, but we are a long way from having ripe tomatoes here. So, how do think tinned ones would work?

  5. Donalyn says:

    Hi Maurene and thanks for visiting. Canned tomatoes would work, though the taste would not be exactly the same as fresh. I would probably look for ones that are diced and maybe reserve the liquid to only add if you need it. And I am jealous that you are in spring time there ;)

  6. This is one of my favourite way to eat pasta. I love simple garicky sauce made with fresh, ripe tomatoes. I feel a little bit envious of the amount of tomatoes that ended in your kitchen … in the UK it was a bad season for tomatoes. I love them so much that I do not get rid of the skin!!

    That is something I adore! A perfect pasta dish.

    Rita – it definitely pays to marry a man who loves to garden!

    Thanks Rosa!

    Simple but delicious. I am savoring these last few weeks of end of summer produce (we’re still in the 90s here in Austin!) Thank you for sharing!

    Thanks Monet – I still have a couple pails of tomatoes ripening in the garage. Lots of greens and root crops still in the ground. I’ll be busy for awhile yet :)

    This looks so fresh and light. Not to mention easy, which essential for me, since I am just now starting to learn how to cook. I always check your recipes, because you explain things very clearly for a beginner like me. Thanks Donalyn!

  12. I did a major garden cleanup this past week, including pulling out all of our tomato plants. So I have some green tomatoes on my kitchen windowsill, but no ripe ones. I hate seeing tomato season go. Anyway, good job with this recipe. I make a similar sauce, and just love its fresh flavor. Good stuff – thanks.

  13. Donalyn says:

    Thanks ali – I am sure it will work well for you – VERY easy!

    John – I still have a few ripening as well, and the garden is cleaned of all but root crops and greens. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comment.

    this looks so good!

    I just love recipes like this. Simple ingredients make the best flavours. And it is hard to go wrong with Italian food! :)

  16. Donalyn says:

    Thanks so much Anita

    Virginia – You are right about that – Italian is never a mistake!

  17. Donalyn, your pasta dish looks so wonderful and fresh! I love it:)

    This was on Pinterest this morning, and I am really glad that I came over to see the recipe. It is so simple, that even I can probably make it! Thanks so much – I will be back to your blog again.

    Thank you Bibi – I appreciate that!

    Thanks Alberto & thanks for stopping by!

    Elizabeth – thanks for your visit and I am so glad you found me. Isn’t Pinterest great?
