    Rhiannon and Matt's Note:

    This quick pasta meal (perfect for Summer) comes from Notebook magazine - January 2008 along with the following notes & tips: * This recipe can be easily adjusted to suit any taste. Substitute basil with oregano and thyme, or use all three for a richer flavour. For colour variation, use yellow and red cherry tomatoes. If cooking for children, use penne, which is easier to pick up with a fork.

      This easy to make recipe is bursting with fresh flavor. The marinated tomatoes are especially nice. Beware, the recipe does lose some of its great flavor when reheated for leftovers, but having it the day it is made is truly phenomenal. I used fresh ricotta from the local market and basil from my garden. This one is definitely a keeper. Thanks!
