Reviews for Bow Ties with Fresh Tomato Sauce
"This tasted great! Loved the fact that I could use tomatoes and herbs from the garden and didn't even have to cook the sauce. Will definitely be making this again."
"I quadrupled the recipe to feed my family, and it was delicious. My son invited a friend to dinner (a notorious picky eater), and he asked for leftovers to take home. This recipe is a keeper."
"I give this one 10 out of 10! I have made this twice and my family loved it - even my son who thinks he doesn't like tomatoes unless they're pureed. I plan on trying it with whole wheat boxties next time just to make it completely healthy.MLH"
