This is a wonderful dish that I had while on the coast of Spain. It should be enjoyed with a good white wine or sangria, and warm crusty bread. I could not find a recipe that came close to what I had in Spain so I came up with this recipe myself. It is a big hit with family and friends. Enjoy. This can be made ahead of time and the recipe can doubled.

I am from Spain and Pil Pil in dishes mostly means having parsley. You could just add a tbs of chopped fresh parsley, to see if it's closer to what you enjoyed there.

I would cut the garlic in half next time. I did not have sweet paprika, only regular paprika. I didn't know if this was the same thing so I was afraid to put in 3 whole tablespoons of it. I used a 1/4 tsp of paprika. It made a nice little sauce to add over fettucine. One kid liked it, one definitely did not (too spicy) and I'm sitting on the fence.
