"So I was looking for a recipe I could cook with ingredients I already had at home, and I came across this gem. I think the recipe is open to interpretation as I couldn't quite understand why the garlic and chile should be removed. So I left my crushed garlic and chile powder in.
The pasta I used was spaghetti, as it was the only pasta I had at home right now.
Also, I used dry parsley and I added capers which really enhanced the flavor.
And it was sooo quick and easy. I love quick and easy recipes.
Will definitely make this again.
