When it's too to cook, just toss pasta with a little cheese and whatever else you have on hand.

This was great, I added some roasted tomatoes, lots of fresh basil, garlic, and sprinkled some oregano and lemon juice on there. I will try adding some spice next, as it reminds me of the "Big Rig" from my fave restaurant, which makes it with a chipotle cheese sauce.

I have a question regarding the Parmesan - what brand is being used? I've yet to find a vegetarian version (all the brands of Parmesan I've ever seen contain rennet). Thanks!

Love the foundation of the Recipe. But, I found it to be a little too dry. So, I took serving sizes of it out and made it a make to order, lol. By adding a little olive oil and pasta water per serving mixing in the salt and pepper and lemon juice to add some acid to the dish. I topped with black olives, rosemary, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes.
