"This was delicious. The only thing heavy about it was the pasta and we opted for angel hair. I would recommend prepping all ingredients beforehand, as the cooking times per the directions are spot on. Pleasantly spicy! My husband says he'd "pay for this at a restaurant!" so we will definitely prepare this again. Thank you!"
