    Lovely quick meal and if you add creme fraiche instead of parmesan it's not too fattening.  -  06 Jun 2012


    I made this for my friends on Superbowl Sunday. They loved it! I made only a few minor tweaks... Added 1 extra clove of garlic. Added 1 teaspoon of italian seasoning. Added 1 teaspoon of Aleppo pepper (for that extra kick).  -  29 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Recipe needs at least one more clove of garlic.Pasta water needs to be salted. I tossed it with angel hair pasta, but it needed fresh ground pepper to give it a little more umph.Next time I'll use thin spaghetti.  -  01 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
