I changed the pasta to fusilli, used coriander instead of parsley, and this was delicious! With a simple salad on the side it was a wonderful lunch!

This is really good. I especially loved the crunchy bits of bread. I'd like to find a vegetable to add to this to make it a one dish meal. Peas maybe? Overall, really quick, delicious, and easy meal! Thanks Brabo....
