    Karen's Krazy Kitchen's Note:

    This is a delicious, fast and easy dish to prepare. The key is to have everything prepped, because it comes together really fast. Cut back on the red pepper flakes if you don't like things too hot but do add at least a pinch.

      This recipe was really good! Simple and easy to make. I served it as a side dish with chicken picatta. I forgot to add the bread crumbs of all things because I was trying to do 6 other things in the kitchen but it still turned out great. I'm sure it'll be even better with the bread crumbs. Even with my blunder, our dinner guests loved this dish and have been bugging me for the recipe, which I just passed along.
