I love this type of pasta dish, simple to make and lets the flavours of parsley and garlic really shine. I made this with some brown rice spaghetti, which worked well and made it a gluten free meal.

This is easy, quick, economical, and delicious. I halved the recipe for two of us. We loved the hint of chili pepper. This makes a nice lunch or light supper, and you can easily add many different ingredients to suit your taste. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen.
