"A very fresh tasting comfort food! One day my boyfriend brought home some fresh sage from his mother's garden and I wasn't sure what to do with it. I came up with this wonderful dish that has so many variations!" — Gypsybead

1 1/2 teaspoons
1 (14.4 ounce) can
whole peeled tomatoes, with liquid, quartered
dried thyme leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons
thinly sliced fresh sage leaves
1/2 (8 ounce) package
salt and pepper to taste
Very good, I did cut back on the sage and bay leaf only because that is my families preference. I also added some blackened chicken to the top when served. Turned out very good. Thanks for the post.
I hadn't worked with capers much, but was needing a recipe to try with it. I also have a TON of sage this year so I went for it. I thought it came out fairly well. I marinated some chicken to serve with it, which was a nice addition.
Great recipe. Would use considerably less capers though, as the dish turned out quite salty despite the fact that i didn't use any salt at all. And this is coming from a person who likes her food salty. Would make this again.
I had lots of garden herbs to use up so used a mixture of basil, oregano, chives, parsley and sage. With pipette pasta, it made a great side dish with grilled london broil and a grilled vegetable salad. My husband said it was the best pasta he has had in ages, and said that if we had gotten this at a restaurant, we would go back just for that pasta.
Very nice pasta dish. I think maybe I'll add more thyme and sage next time--I'm not really tasting it as much as I'd like. I used fresh tomatoes since they were starting to look sad, and I add red and orange bell peppers for the same reason. Bc I added more ingredients, I upped the capers--shouldve done the same with the sage. Perhaps bc I used raw tomatoes, I added about half a can of V8 juice; the liquid really cooked down quickly and since I wanted to cook as directed, I added tomato juice, which kept it moist. I didn't find this to be too salty from the capers and tomato juice; I thought it was just right. I almost never add salt and pepper in recipes unless it is added in the beginning; I prefer to let pple decide at the table if it needs more salt. I'm glad I left it out this time. I don't have linguine, or even spaghetti, so I used mini penne and felt it worked well. Although I did add veggies to this, I think this makes more like four servings; that's okay, I can have for lunches at work this week. Thanks for the recipe!
This was good, flavorful, and very easy. I used fresh tomatoes and a mix of whole-wheat and regular penne. I topped each serving with Romano cheese and red pepper flakes, which complemented the sauce wonderfully.
I had to quadruple the amount of pasta. And we used corkscrew pasta instead of Linguine. We are a large family... but I have to say it was a very nice change to white sauces. I used butter to saute instead of olive oil. We grow most of our foods so I used some diced tomatoes we canned last fall. Turned out great. I recommend it. Would be great for a potluck!
This was pretty good, my husband liked it. I will make it again. I used penne pasta instead of linguine, its what I had on hand.
