    This is my favorite italian dish. This is a good, simple rendition, but where's the parmesan cheese? I'll try your version one day and tell you how it tastes, but knowing me, I'll end up adding prosciutto and peas, and leaving out the red pepper. Then it really wouldn't still be your recipe, would it? Hm, let me ponder this conundrum.
