Recipe by Bergy

If you do not care for cilantro substitute with Basil and a couple of chili peppers. This is an easy tasty pasta dish.

Yum, yum, Bergymum! I like to take "cooking breaks" from studying (believe it or not, cooking relaxes me tremendously! :) and making this was almost as much fun as eating it! Charring the onions gives it a lovely flavour, and the combination of lime, onions, cilantro and garlic was quite something else! I added salt to taste, and wolfed this down for lunch, despite wondering, at first, if 4 ounces of pasta for 1 person was a tad much ;-) I might add some more pepper, or chili powder, or maybe even some dried oregano for just that extra flavour that it seems lacking. Thanks a ton... as usual! :-)
