Hubby made this and it was surprisingly tasty given the few ingredients and simplicity. The only thing we did differently was leave out the onion. The recipe worked as stated. Will make again. Thanks for posting!

Yumm, this was tasty. I increased this recipe to serve 4 and tried to use the least amount of oil parmesan cheese as possible in an attempt to cut down on fat. Used a whole wheat pasta and increased the garlic and chili flakes considerably. Thanks for posting!
