  1. I followed the recipe to a T and the sauce was very watery. Never thickened up. Was more of a soup pasta 🙁

  2. This dish I made for the 1st time almost 2 years ago & it was amazing & we’ve made it many many times since. If you love pasta you’ll absolutely LOVE this. I am obsessed with the sun dried tomatoes they really make the dish for sure. You’ve got to make it at least once and i can almost promise it will become a regular.
