Very good -- we used cheddar cheese and forgot the chili peppers. Used garlic salt for the seasoning salt. Easy and good!

We thoroughly enjoyed this light pasta! Used kamut noodles, a grating of sharp cheddar, one Thai chili and a splash of lemon juice. Perfect! Did have the chiffonade of basil but forgot to put on before I took the photo. The basil is a must in this recipe! Thanks for another keeper Pia! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
