    this dish had good flavor but I did use dry oregano I think the dry was too much ad fresh will be better next time.

    We used this recipe as a base for escargot. Instead of browning whole cloves of garlic, I chopped them. I also added a touch of pepperoncini for a little zip. Delicious! I also used multi-grain pasta.

    This is one of my family's favorites. I double the garlic since we all love it.
