One of the best dishes I've had in a long time and hubby AND 4 year old son agreed. The only modifications made were I threw in 1 diced Roma tomato when I added the basil, I omitted the pepper flakes and I used regular spaghetti because I forgot to pick up angel hair but I think I like it better with the spaghetti so I plan on making it the same way next time.
