  1. I've been looking for a restaurant quality pasta recipe that doesn't require too many ingredients, this is one of the easier ones (and cheaper) that I've found. Made it tonight and it was tasty. Thank you.

  2. Thanks - whenever I need meal ideas, I love to look through restaurant menus and see what I can make at home that's comparable.
