    Another light great tasting pasta. I love all the garlic. You can adjust the heat by playing with the pepper flakes!

      This recipe was great - everyone came back for seconds, thirds, and even fourths! I made very few changes - I used frozen boiled shrimp and chopped up broccoli I had previously cooked, and dry dill weed as I didn't have fresh this season. I had only 5 garlic cloves (quite large, fortunately) - next time I will make sure I have plenty of garlic on hand. My husband, although he had 4 helpings, would have preferred a little more oil - I may try one Tbsp. oil instead of the water to saute the onions. By popular demand, I will be making this frequently.

      Made this for dinner last night and it is delicious. I really liked the fact that it is low in calories without a lot of added fat or oil. I did use a couple of teaspoons olive oil to cook the onion. Gluten free penne was substituted for the angel hair. With the penne I got 4 nice servings. DH and I are looking forward to leftovers.

      This was really good! I actually substitute spray-on olive oil and cooking sherry for the water for cooking the onions, garlic and shrimp. It mostly cooks off, so it adds very few calories.
