"This is a nice change from regular old pasta with tomato sauce. You can serve a large portion as a main dish, or I've even used this as my 'salad' at dinner parties. Really simple!"

I thought this recipe was pretty good.. My husband didnt like the flavor with the olive oil. I think if it was made with butter it would taste great! I'm going to try it next time.

Mmmmmmm yummy! Instead of using 8oz pasta I used a full pound of thin spaghetti. I made the sauce with 8 tbsp EVOO, half a stick of butter, juice of 2 lemons, 4 cloves garlic minced, and 1 tsp...

My whole family loved this and I found it very easy to prepare. I did however halve the amount of oil and found this to be more than enough.
