  2. Nice recipe.
  3. I really loved this. I lightened it up by cutting back pasta to 12 oz olive oil to 1/4 cup and butter to 3 TB. I also used smoked paprika which really made the dish. I can't imagine it would be better with more butter and oil.

  10. This recipe was good. I added 2 cloves of garlic instead of one and 2 tomatoes instead of one. It was delicious. I think I will try putting fresh basil in next time or a little white wine.
