Really easy and flavourful. Plus, it’s flexible - you can sub oil for the butter and throw in extra veggies.

WOW!!! This was such a great, simple, easy recipe! I cut this in half for just my husband and I and it wasn't a problem. I used spaghetti as the pasta. I think next time I'll try thin spaghetti. I only used a pinch of cayenne because I didn't want it to be spicy. I also used dry parsley instead of fresh, making sure to do the proper conversion. The lime juice was NOT overpowering whatsoever, it was the perfect amount. My husband and I devoured this. I will DEFINITELY make this again!

This is a great simple dinner to make and tastes delicious. I will probably cut down on the butter a bit next time, but very yummy!

I have made this multiple times. My boyfriend loves it! I usually cut back a little on the butter and substitute olive oil. It has a good spice without being overbearing.

We served it alongside asparagus and the two were very complimentary. My husband and nine-year-old loved it.
