orlando bloom s pasta au pistou


posted for mom2rose who's a big orlando bloom fan. the following blurb came with the recipe: "my role in the pirates of the caribbean series has inadvertently made me something of a connoisseur of caribbean cuisine - and dominica had the most impact on me. we found this amazing tree-house restaurant called indigo. it's off the beaten path, and run by marie frederick and her husband clem, who serve this delicious pasta recipe." note: the original recipe called for "one tin of tomatoes, drained" but the zaar recipe software won't accept that vague description. so, i guesstimated a 15oz can of tomatoes. mom2rose will be the expert on the actual can size because she's actually made this recipe! :)
