I found this recipe on a box of spaghetti years ago, and it has become one of our favorite summer dishes when the garden is producing an abundance of tomatoes and herbs. You can use dried herbs if fresh are not available, but nothing beats the aroma your kitchen will have while you are preparing it with fresh herbs and garlic.
