Simple but very tasty. It's nice eating a pasta dish that feels healthy too. Will make again. Thanks!

For such a classic (Italian? Roman?)dish, I was so surprised that I could only find one other recipe under "Peperoncino". Simplest things are often soooo good. If you're bored with bland food, try this. Garlic...yum. Spicy...yum.

Delicious! This is my favourite way to prepare spaghetti. Simple but SO yummy. I used crushed red chilli flakes instead of a fresh chilli but I'd like to try the fresh chilli next time.
