  1. >jen! my first recipe and i loved it! a few things tho…i think i put too much red pepper. a lil' too spicy. and is the amount of basil correct? cups or should it be tbsp? also, i couldn't find vegan parm cheese at trader joes. so i just chose one with the least fat.i rarely cook, but this dish was sooo easy to make!i never realized how much i loved basil ;)awesome job cuz!!love, dye
