First, let me say that Hubs’ and my heat tolerance level with spices is “Coward.” That said, I eliminated the cayenne pepper altogether and we found this “zippy” enough without it. Besides, I used a nice, smoky paprika (Penzey’s) which gave this all the flavor we needed. I expected to dislike it, actually, thinking the amount of paprika would be more than we’d prefer, but it was right on. The basil gave this a nice, clean, fresh finish. I served this over lobster ravioli, but a rice pilaf or pasta with garlic and olive oil would have been nice too. Zucchini Provencale, also from this site, completed our meal.
