    Mirj's Note:

    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!

      Made this for supper the other night. My DH and I loved it. The only addition was a second clove of garlic. Spicy and hot enough for us. This was really great and we will have this again. Thanks!!

      This was really good. It was very easy to prepare and everyone liked it. I would take it easy on the red pepper flakes if you don't like things spicy. I loved it but my kids thought it was a little hot.
