What a clever idea! Although we just love sundried tomatoes I had never thought to use them in a pasta sauce. This recipe sounded so great and it seemed quick and easy too which always makes me happy so I made it for the family yesterday. I added a little chopped fresh chilli but only because we like a little bite to our tomato pasta sauce. Judging by the empty plates after dinner everyone really enjoyed it )
