About this recipe: A pasta sauce that could not be easier or quicker to make! Serve with a short pasta, like penne, and generous sprinklings of grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese.
If the fresh tomatoes aren't garden fresh and full of flavour I would consider omitting them from the recipe.
This was fabulous !!!I sauteed 2 boneless chicken breasts ,(flattened with a mallet),and then put about 1/2 cup of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish then put the chicken on top and then the rest of the sauce.Cooked about 25 min. in oven at 375*Served with linguine and lots of parmesan. My husband is a retired chef, he said keep this recipe where you can find it to cook again. - 12 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent! Very spicy with that much red pepper flakes - weaklings might want to cut it in half. I used oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes and was able to omit the olive oil from the recipe and it worked great! - 29 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a great recipe -- very tasty. I doubled the recipe and it was barely enough for 4 people, even if you are not trying to smother the pasta. I would recommend quadrupling it if you are planning for 6-8 people and/or leftovers. Also, start light on the oil and then add more if needed; mine turned out a little oily. Also, if you don't like really salty dishes, I would start light with the olives, and then add for flavor as needed. I put fewer in than the recipe noted, but didn't taste it until I had too many and was a bit too salty. Finally, I had never cooked with crushed pepper, and a little goes a LONG way. If you are feeding this to kids, definitely hold the crushed pepper. Also, sprinkle a little, then taste -- and repeat if necessary, otherwise, you will be surprised! Overall -- great recipe with very fresh ingredients. - 04 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
