I thought it was pretty tasty but hubby tossed his after a few bites. Next time I would double the red pepper flakes and garlic (yeah I do love my garlic) and omit the pasta water. Was a little runny. But I'd make it again.
"DELICIOUS"!!!! Wonderful blend of ingredients giving superb flavor. I scaled this down to a hefty single serving and made as written omitting the red pepper flakes. Thanks for posting this great recipe, a keeper for sure. Made for Best of 2011 Cookbook Tag.
10 STARS for this!!!! Such great flavors and so easy to put together. I would also add a bit more red pepper flakes, as previous reviewer said, but other than that, a perfect recipe! Made for Spring 2011 PAC game.
