I have all of these ingredients on hand except the pine nuts and I don't think I will miss them this time. This is a WONDERFUL recipe so it will be tonight's dinner. I will drizzle a little EVOO over this. Thanks so much for posting. I LOVE sun dried tomatoes.

Glad you like it, let me know how you like it if you make it.....although its the type of recipe you really can't go wrong with! add or take something out and it would still be good :)

I made it tonight and it was excellent. This one is a keeper for sure. I kept to the recipe exactly and served it over linguini, but as I mentioned didn't have the pine nuts. It was still good, and I drizzled a little olive oil over it. Thanks again for posting it.

Oh good and you are welcome! I've been wanting to make it again soon but I'll have to wait till I go grocery shopping again....I'm a huge pine nut fan, and I would miss them!!
