I don't like the heavy red or white pasta sauces and accidentally created this when I added the balsamic vinegar instead of extra olive oil. My 7 year old daughter loves the flavor, but still does not like the tomatoes. I find it makes a good meal for me and my husband prefers it as a side dish for his fish. It can be adjusted to suit you our your guests. Most of my friends prefer the whole wheat pasta and it works food for this as well.
