This is my all-time favorite pasta dish, especially since it's non-dairy. I like it hot, but you can adjust the red pepper flakes to make it as hot or mild as you like.

Well this was just wonderful! I didn't expect anything sensational from such simple ingredients, but the more we ate the more we loved it. I thought the basil and parsley amounts looked small for fresh herbs, so I used the dried herbs instead (same amounts.) It was just right, and I served it with spelt rotini. This recipe is now on my "make often" list. Thanks Mirj!
