This was very good.Can vary the red pepper flakes to increase or decrease the spicy taste.One and a half teaspoon is perfect for me.Thanks

Delicious; Dh raved. Had to double the amount of oil to get the mixture thin enough to brush on. I'll try fresh, chopped basil next time and might not need the extra oil.
