    Great tip reserving some pasta cooking water, to add moisture to the sauce if needed! This looks deliciously creamy!

      Thank you. Amazing how much flavor it brings to the dish as it contains all the pasta natural starch.

    This sounds amazing & can’t wait to try! Thank you for the extra tips too. I learned about 3 new things from this post including how to reheat without a microwave… sad I’ve never even given that thought. I’m sure it helps keep the integrity of the food too.
