Really love this one. Easy to throw together and very fresh tasting. Left a mild tingle in our mouths from the red pepper flakes. Quite filling and something I would want to have again. Thanks,Lainey.

Mine was a little too "wine" tasting so I turned it into a quick cream sauce with half & half, parm cheese and a little cornstarch. Could have been the wine I used - not sure. Anyhoo, this used up some asparagus, wine and mushrooms that were dying in the fridge so I thank you for a QUICK meal. I also liked that this was a smaller meal size, perfect for 2 people.
