Awesome flavor, quick and simple to make. I did use 2 cans of basil, garlic and oregano diced tomatoes with their juices instead of fresh tomatoes other than that I followed the recipe. The only reason I gave this a 4 stars is because the sauce was watery, maybe I will use less of the juices and let it reduce before serving. I will definately be making this again.(Update: I did make this again and still used 2 cans of basil, garlic and oregano diced tomatoes but drained the juices from one can and then while cooking I let the sauce reduce until it was thick enough and not watery.)

I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes, tripled the garlic, added dried oregano, and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce, I added 1 cup of white wine and just under a cup of chicken broth. Let everything simmer and it was simply delicious and light. The grated parmesan cheese is an essential finishing touch. I will definitely include this dish in my regular rotation. Thanks!

This was very tasty. I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I added a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. I'm sure this is even better with fresh tomatoes. If using canned tomatoes, I think 1 tsp. sugar would help cut the tang of the tomatoes. My husband enjoyed this so I'll make this again!
