1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Saute garlic and parsley until golden.
2. Add tomatoes and spices. Cook uncovered over low heat 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. If desired, add chicken and continue cooking for 15 minutes until chicken is heated through and sauce is thick.
3. Cook pasta firm in unsalted water.
4. To serve, spoon sauce over pasta and sprinkle with coarsely chopped parsley. Serve hot as a main dish and cold for the next day's lunch.

I just ran across this recipe and it sounds interesting. I may play with it a bit for the benefit of my vegetarian friends, using tofu instead of chicken. A block of tofu can be placed between paper towels, then that placed between several thicknesses of newspaper, with some weight (a couple of books, etc.) stacked on top of it all. This will press much of the moisture out, changing its texture considerably. It will then also absorb more liquid if you choose to soak it in something flavorful. You'll get even more of the moisture out by slicing it before it is pressed. I am not a vegetarian but I enjoy the challenge of fixing them something that's fit to eat, yet doesn't have a mama. <grin>
