    Something else. Added some fresh spinach and warmed the sauce through.  -  18 Apr 2009

    This was excellent! I've made it twice in one week and both times it was gobbled up. Very light pasta dish for summer. Even my dad, who has to have meat, loved it and asked for more! Angel hair and thin spaghetti can also be used. Didn't have goat cheese the second time around and it was fine, but will definitely use it in the future as it does give the dish an extra unique taste.  -  28 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
