Delish! Light and refreshing for a hot summer day. I did use garden fresh picked plum tomatoes and a 1 fresh picked cayenne minced in place of the flakes. I'm not a big spaghetti fan but really enjoyed it in this dish. I drizzled EVOO over the finished dish and a sprinkle of grated cheese. This would be extra tasty topped with toasted pine nuts. ;) Thanks for the good eats. Made for veggie tag.

With the recipe cut in half, this made an ample & tasty side dish for the 2 of us! Simple & easy to put together, & the flavorful tomatoes I got at the Farmers' Market made it special! A great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
