    Absolutley delicious summertime meal! I have always had a phobia of using uncooked, fresh tomatoes in a sauce but I've been converted! lol My husband loves red onions and Italian dressing so I decided to give this recipe a try. I used four beefsteak tomatoes (my plum romas were not ripe yet) that I picked from my garden and I seeded and diced them. Then I picked a big handful of basil and chopped that up. I added 1/2 cup of Good Seasons Salad dsg ( that I had made with balsamic vinegar...I noted that alot of recipes for fresh tomato sauce add balsamic vinegar so that is how I incorporated it into this one). Finally, I used angel hair because that is what I had. It is just an explosion of freshness and summer in your mouth when you eat this. I highly recommend!  -  08 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I just loved this but I don't use or buy Italian dressing and I omitted the raw onion - straight olive oil and a little fresh minced garlic worked for me instead. Served this with "Grandma Bogie's Parmesan Chicken," recipe also from this site.  -  25 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
