My family liked this recipe, but I'm not sure it's good enough to warrant the amount of fat and calories it contains. As other reviewers mentioned, I had to double the sauce to make enough to cover the pasta. I did use fresh basil, which I think added a lot to the flavor. I can't imagine that dried basil would give the same amount of flavor. I added sauteed mushrooms and sliced red pepper to this, which we enjoyed and thought made the dish more complete. Overall, definitely something everyone in my family ate and said they liked, but too heavy for a regular weeknight meal. I may try to lighten it up a little bit and see how that goes.
