Here’s a simple sauce with just four ingredients, and it's savory enough for a fancy party. I use bowtie pasta, but penne works, too. — Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho

"Sounds delicius"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2015

"For my taste, I added some other spices and a few family tricks. Ingredients I shuffled were the garlic and tomatoes. Also it was a good menu for us, with our mods. Also, my mom had a similar recipe but she used plum tomatoes, more olive oil and vermicelli pasta and lots less garlic. Her rendition was better."

"My family didn't like this. We ended up go out to eat that night. Something was missing and we all felt the tomato taste was too strong. Needed more flavor."

"I don't know why but my family did not care much for this--adding chicken would probably help but there was just something missing."

"Love that this is so simple & delish! Would be good with chicken added for those that need meat in every meal."
