Just made this tonight and fiancee gobbled it up. It was easy and delicious. I added a bit little more garlic and oil.

I love this meal, it is so perfect, so easy and so healthy. I always had twice the garlic and a tadge mnore olive oil. Today I was out of lemon juice and rosemary, so I used thyme and lime juice instead. Just as faulous too!

I actually threw in some halved cherry tomatos for a little color/sweetness. It turned out wonderfully! such a easy, delicious pasta dinner.

And I forgot to mention: Use only olive oil as it just makes this recipe.

This was super-easy and very tasty. I love that it used only one pot, uses ingredients that you have in your pantry, and goes from stove to table in just under 30 min. ?
