There are times when simple is best, and that's the case with this recipe. My hubby (who's a dedicated carnivore) didn't even complain that there was no meat in this. We both thoroughly enjoyed this for lunch today. To give this a little punch of flavor, I sauteed the garlic in extra virgin oil with chili, keeping the red pepper flakes as well, and mixed in the chopped parsley at the end to retain its bright green color. We actually prefer the bold taste of pecorino romano over parmigiano reggiano, so that was a sub I made. Photo doesn't show this, but it was served with shaved romano on the top.

This is a great lunch or dinner on a day you're running late. I served it with a green salad and homemade Italian bread. I wasn't sure how the 4 yr old would like the red pepper but he didn't seem to notice it. I have been making this for years but this was the first time I added the red pepper and I must say it bumps this up from pretty good to yummy? Thanks!

This great side dish is made from pantry staples, and it is a nice change from potatoes. It certainly livened up our leftover chicken, and it was a snap to put together. I used half a box of spaghetti, but kept everything else the same, adding only a tablespoon of clarified butter after I threw it all together.
