“This is a great quick pasta sauce, full of flavor. Ladle onto short pasta with a generous spoonful of Pecorino Romano cheese. This is not intended to be a sauce that you smother the pasta in. If the fresh tomatoes aren't garden fresh and full of flavor I would consider omitting them from the recipe.” - by Giuseppe Morabito
Original recipe yields 4 servings

"This was fabulous !!!I sauteed 2 boneless chicken breasts ,(flattened with a mallet),and then put about 1/2 cup of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish then put the chicken on top and then the rest of..." See more the sauce.Cooked about 25 min. in oven at 375*Served with linguine and lots of parmesan. My husband is a retired chef, he said keep this recipe where you can find it to cook again."
"Excellent! Very spicy with that much red pepper flakes - weaklings might want to cut it in half. I used oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes and was able to omit the olive oil from the recipe and it worked..." See more great!"

"This was a great recipe -- very tasty. I doubled the recipe and it was barely enough for 4 people, even if you are not trying to smother the pasta. I would recommend quadrupling it if you are planni..." See moreng for 6-8 people and/or leftovers. Also, start light on the oil and then add more if needed; mine turned out a little oily. Also, if you don't like really salty dishes, I would start light with the olives, and then add for flavor as needed. I put fewer in than the recipe noted, but didn't taste it until I had too many and was a bit too salty. Finally, I had never cooked with crushed pepper, and a little goes a LONG way. If you are feeding this to kids, definitely hold the crushed pepper. Also, sprinkle a little, then taste -- and repeat if necessary, otherwise, you will be surprised! Overall -- great recipe with very fresh ingredients. :)"
