Please add this Note when and if the recipe archived. Thank you! (These amounts can be added in the "Parting Shots", please don't change the original recipe, as it would no longer be the clone, as published).
1 (12 ounce) package of whole grain thin spaghetti
1 (28-ounce) can canned petite diced tomatoes (plain, no added seasonings), with juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
9 large cloves garlic, sliced
1 handful fresh basil leaves, cut in ribbons
Salt and pepper, to taste
*I found one other clone recipe for Tag Pic Pac, also contributed courtesy of Carraba's Italian Grill. It was based on 6 ounces of pasta, rather than 4. For this amount of pasta, it suggested 2 Tablespoons of fresh sliced garlic. My dish was VERY garlicky!
**The other recipe which I just referred to used 1 cup of canned diced tomatoes, with juices for each 6 ounces of pasta.
***Be sure to use freshly ground pepper. One of the many websites I visited searching for the recipe said each Carraba's restaurant grinds their own peppercorns.
