Named after the friend that first introduced this dish to me one homesick day. It is a simple pasta that lends itself to endless variety. Try adding mushrooms or zucchini. I find that angel hair pasta is best, but thicker pasta will certainly work as well. Drizzle with extra olive oil before serving.

I made some slight changes, but this turned out beautifully! Used less Angel Hair. 2 Tbs Olive Oil, and sauteed some minced garlic, red onion and a full can of (Drained) diced tomatoes with garlic, oregano and basil. Spiced it up with some Penzey's Pasta Sprinkle (oregano / thyme & basil), S&P, red pepper flakes, and parsley. Tossed over the noodles and topped with a bit of Parmesan. Couldn't believe the tomato-hating husband was eating - AND LOVING - it! Adding this to rotation.

To add more flavor, roast the tomatoes, add a few shakes of crushed red pepper, add a tablespoon of lightly crushed fennel seed, and definitely add parmesan cheese!

I made the recipe as is but after tasting it, I added a little more EVOO, a half teaspoon more of oregano and basil and a half teaspoon of crushed red pepper flake. I liked that this was a quick side to throw together, it paired well with meatloaf.
