Last night, I enjoyed an unbelievable meal at Edward's Fine Food & Wine (which I'll obviously be sharing sometime soon). After baked oysters and white wine clams, we were served a to-die-for capellini that reminded me of my latest home-cooked "Italian night" dish. I'm handing you a no-fuss, elegant sauce that can top your favorite pasta shape or, perhaps, baguette slice or halibut filet. . .The adaptations are endless when you're working with fresh garlic and roasted tomatoes. Thank you for reading, and have a lovely weekend!
