I have loved this recipe for years as has everyone I have served it to. Nothing tastes more like summer, especially if you let the sauce sit at room temperature for quite awhile before adding the pasta. Thank you for this recipe!

What kind of salad/side dish do you think would go well with this pasta?

for a richer flavor, roast the garlic and tomato pieces drizzled with olive oil

This looks super easy and tasty too! I see someone else used rigatoni? I want to try it using pasta that we love made from Kamut Khorasan Wheat! Oh my - I bet it would be fabulous! Great recipe, thanks!

I made this for Mother's Day. Yum, what a fresh dish to serve to my family. I also used Rigatoni and with the raves I received, I will be making this dish again and again.

We made this recipe for Mother's Day. We used Rigatoni. It was wonderful! Allow the tomatoes to marinate for several hours. Yummy!

Martha used Setaro brand "calamar" noodles on the show, from Buon Italia (http://www.buonitalia.com/) in Chelsea Market

I looked online and found Garofalo Calamarata Pasta from Pastacheese.com. The cost was $6.99 for 2 lbs. I placed an order at 11:19 EST and it has already shipped! I am looking foward to making this dish.

Actually during a break in the show someone did ask where to get it and I'm sorry that I can't remember the name of the store. I do remember the shop was located in Chelsea Market in NYC, so when I get a chance to go there, I'll post the name of the store.

It was wide ring shaped pasta-Calamarata (squid like). I don't remember if martha said where it was purchased. I would like to find it too.

I posted a question, but looks like it didn't post. I was at the show yesterday and just wanted to know the name of the pasta Martha used. I didn't get a chance to write it down. Thanks!
