Footnotes

  • NOTE: Oven roasted tomatoes can be a substitute for sundried tomatoes, or an addition to this pasta or your favorite pasta, pizza, risotto or salad. Slice plum, roma or campari tomatoes lengthwise, place on cookie sheet , drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes. Towards the end, drizzle with balsamic vinegar if serving on top of greens.

Made as directed. It was alright, but definitely didn't have as much flavor as I expected. Probably won't make again/
