"It was excellent.The only thing I changed was use olive oil instead of butter. Will definitely make again."

"This was very good and delicious. I will make again. I had left overs so I will see how well it freezes. If freezing doesn't work, next time I will try cutting it by half. I used 4 tablespoons of butter and 3 garlic cloves. I felt the pasta needed more moisture and I always add more garlic than a recipe calls for. I loved how easy this recipe was to whip up. I will keep it handy for tomato season."

"This has been a summer favorite in our house for years. Perfect towards the end of the growing season when we have lots of tomatoes. I dice and fry chicken in butter and toss into the mix and we eat it as a meal. I also use whole wheat thin spaghetti noodles as we prefer the noodles thinner. The leftovers are just as good as when it is first made."

"I am going to try this again, but will be using a thinner pasta and olive oil instead of butter. Something just didn't seem right to me and I really think it was the use of butter."

"Fresh-tasting, light and delicious! Instead of butter, I tossed the pasta with a little olive oil, a very healthy fat. This is the perfect summer meal!"
