If you're looking for a quick & easy, no nonsense meal that's tasty - look no further. I wouldn't serve it for guests though (except as a side dish) without some doctoring. For me, this is the perfect "basic" recipe to broaden my repertoire of heavy Italian/pasta dishes to include a lighter, fresher approach as the hot summer months loom. I test drove this recipe tonight with turkey Italian sausage that I browned with onions in EVOO, added sherry & reduced. Put it in a large S/S bowl & mixed in: Girard's Champagne Vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar, 6 cloves pressed garlic, plum tomatoes, more basil than recipe, and seasoned with salt & pepper before tossing with angel hair pasta. It was so yummy my family loved it! Even my picky 3 year old carnivore ate it up. Next week I'm going to make it with clams, substituting Italian dressing & tomato for a white wine & clam juice reduction with zucchini, yellow squash & red bell peppers. After that, maybe prosciutto, asparagus, and pine nuts with sun-dried tomato dressing or shrimp with Brussels sprouts and fresh pesto. The possibilities are endless!
