    Karen's Krazy Kitchen's Note:

    This is a wonderfully different pasta dish. Light, quick, delicious and easy. The key is to have everything prepped before cooking because it comes together really fast. Great served with grilled anything but really nice with salmon. Ronzoni has come out with a thin spaghetti called Smart Taste that is made with whole wheat flour, looks and tastes like regular pasta but has SIX grams of fiber. Fantastic!

      What can I say - Delicious, Easy, Great for a quick weeknight dinner. The lemon makes all the difference as it lends it freshness. Definitely a keeper.

      Loved it! I made this recipe as a side dish to some steaks we were having and it was perfect. I used the full tsp of red peper flakes. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2009.

      This is a definite keeper!! :) Made this tonight, DD helped out with the preparations, and we dined on this spicy/sweet pasta dish with baked chicken breasts and a green salad. I did cut the red pepper flakes by half, as we girls can't take too much heat; the change was just right for us. DELISH flavor combinations. Thanks Daffazalea Ranch -- an excellent dish. Made for FALL 2008 PAC.
