"This is a quick and easy sauce to put together. Perfect for a busy weekday diner. When using the dry herbs, make sure you rub them between your fingers as you put them in the sauce to release their flavours as they will not be simmering in this sauce."

Cut this down to half and I had enough for dinner last night and lunch today. Very tasty pasta dish. I loved all the ingredients so it sure hit the spot! I am going to zip it up with some Rotel tomatoes with green chilies when I make it next.
