I created this simple Italian-style pasta dish one day when trying to use up some sun-dried tomatoes.
Altered ingredient amounts. I can't wait to make this again with penne. Also I used chicken stock (well actually bouillon mixed with water b/c that's all I had…shhh) - just popped it in the microwave for 2 minutes then let sit w/tomatoes for 15. I added an extra clove of garlic, but next time I won't and only had 1/2 a bag of baby spinach, but could have used a whole bag. Didn't have pine nuts but I’m sure it would be perfect with them. Topped with gruyere and parmesan - DELICIOUS!!! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. One of my favourites ... very simple to prepare and tasty! I omit the pine nuts as a personal preference, substitute dehydrated tomatoes with julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, no need to presoak them and adds great texture and flavour, and drizzle additional olive oil as the final step to moisten the pasta a bit. Serve with garlic bread and a glass of wine ... sophisticated simplicity. Prepare to impress! Photo available on my profile page. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. Very good, very simple. I added some artichoke hearts and a little salt to taste. Toast the pine nuts and use 1 Tbsp per serving. As others have said, I would add a lot more spinach. Thanks, one of the quickies for my recipe box. I may add some chicken next time. - 29 Sep 2008
