    This is so tasty! I was skeptical at first because there's not much to it. But the sun-dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts really made this dish! I used whole wheat penne and it was a nice, almost sweet contrast to the sauce. - 6/16/08

  • I reduced the sundried tomatoes to 1/2 a jar and added some kalamata olives. Didn't have pine nuts, so didn't add those. - 2/1/12
