Very easy to assemble. Flavorful. Didn't have capers or parsley. Substituted chicken broth for wine/veg. broth. Reduced the pepper flakes by half to decrease the heat. Would either reduce the spaghetti noodles (i used a small handful) or double the puttanesca otherwise not enough to coat all the noodles. Definately adding to my rotation!
