SO HOW'D IT GO?

Yes, this recipe is speedy!  I liked it, crushed red pepper and garlic are two of my favorite things.  It was a easy to throw together-- and I had everything on hand.  I added a little bit of soy creamer to the mix, next time I'll add EB.

I use half a box or so? It just depends on how much sauce you want, each to their own. I just realized this says ONE garlic clove. I usualy use about 7? haha.

I cant believe i havent reviewed this yet, i've made it so many times! This is a basic, yummy, quick, get in my belly recipe. I consider it the jump off point, to just add whatever you want hah. I made it with earth balance tonight, yummy, and this is the first time i actually read the recipe enough to notice it says red pepper ;D. Very good though!

Mmmm well i added onion and tomato and didn't use red pepper. Turned out like more of a simple veggie soup, but that's ok. I luv hot soup and am happy to have found this new creation :)

Not bad ... I changed this a lot though. I used margarine instead of the oil but did add oil eventually. I used garlic powder since I didn't have any fresh garlic, Italian seasoning and about 2 tablespoons chopped onion, and some mushrooms that I needed to use. When I added water, it didn't thicken up very good (I used udon noodles) put I added it anyway and thickened it up by adding a ton of vegan parmesian cheese. It turned out pretty good. Thanks!

This was perfect when I had no food in the house and didn't feel like cooking anyway...I doubled the sauce and threw in some EB, NY and extra garlic.  Delish!

I can attest for the absolute yumminess of this recipe :) We lived on this stuff when we were first married...it was easy on the budget plus I didn't know how to cook much else! Italians  call it spaghetti ajo-ojo pepperoncino or  aglio e olio pepperoncino and if you leave out the red pepper it is called aglio e olio- helpful if you want to order it in a Italian restaurant, although they probably use parmesan cheese and butter with the oil - never mind  :-\.
