This recipe is simply delicious. We had some fresh dill, over-dried cherry tomatoes and homemade pasta left, then made up this recipe to use up the leftover. It turned out surprisingly delicious. A few ingredients and so easy to cook, and loaded with flavor. And it is a so cost-effective dish as well.
