Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Was hungry for pasta one day and I did not want a heavy sauce on it, since it was harvest time, I used ingredients from a friends garden to make this recipie up with and it was GREAT! I add and take away ingredients according to the ingredients in my pantry, but the main three ingredients I keep are the pasta, basil, and oregano besides the olive oil. To add a little tang to this recipe you can add some Italian dressing.
