Pasta Della Massaia

I learnt this meal from my roomie and a great friend, Marie. I LOVE IT! It's very simple and the taste is just fantastic! One of Marie's friend from Holland came to visit us to Dublin and I didn't know what to cook. I must say, I was nervous a bit, because he is a cook himself and he loves nice food. So you can imagine...Well, pasta della masaia was the only thing I could think of. It's fancy, it's simple and it's delicious! Well, he loved it. So, if you like pasta, tomatoes, chicken and lots of garlic, go for it!
