    There has to be a typo on the red pepper flakes--you will ruin your ramps with 1-2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes. Cut it to 2 tsp maximum and then adjust as needed.

    ehguy11 has described exactly what ramps are. I live in NE Tennessee and once a year in the spring they have a ramp festival. It's real interesting to go to and you will meet a lot of friendly people that live in the mountains of Tennessee. If there is a recipe with ramps in it you will find it there and have the chance to taste them all. It's located near Dollywood if you have been down this way.

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was great! I should have dug up more ramps. Had about 15. 20-25 would have been better. Had homemade breadcrumbs too! Used whole-wheat spaghetti as well. Delicious!

    Ramps are a wild member of the onion family that grows on damp forest floors in the early spring (April/May here in CT). Their leaves grow about 6-9 inches out of the ground, but when you dig them up you will see that they have a beautiful white elongated 'bulb' which extends the total length to about 8-12 inches. They have a nice, mild garlic/shallot flavor. I'm lucky enough to have a secret stash of ramps in the forest behind my house. In fact, I just dug some up for dinner tonight!
