Chilling the mozzarella cubes in the freezer for 15 minutes helps them retain their shape when they're added to the hot pasta.

Pretty decent recipe although I found the addition of pasta water unnecessary--maybe a splash but the entire cup was way too much. Otherwise pretty tasty.
SOOOOO QUICK AND EASY! A favorite of mine since I saw it in the magazine! Another tip... if you like melty mozzarella, get low moisture... if you want the mozzarella to retain it's shape as you heat and reheat... get a higher moisture content mozzarella. I have made this dish with both and there is a pointed difference. Both are good, I just like melty cheese :)
Great and easy meal that the whole family loves. I use the whole wheat pasta to make it a bit healthier. I also allow the cheese to melt in the dish; it turns almost into a pink sauce. Delicious!
Easy, quick and tasty. Great for a weekday dinner.
I bet this would be great at room temperature too!
