Delicious! Had to make a couple of changes due to what was on hand. Used fusilli and grape tomatoes. After cooking the tomatoes I pressed to release their juices, then finished the recipe. Love the fresh basil and topped it with a grating of Grana Padano. Thank you for sharing another wonderful recipe Ellie! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
