    Can someone reassure me that the recipe wants me to add the pasta to the raw egg mixture?

      The hot pasta cooks and absorbed the eggs.

    This recipe is wonderful. I make it with gemelli pasta, because the small spirals are so chewy! Even better the next day - if there are leftovers!

    This is one of my favorite recipes, so simple and easy to make. It's a definite keeper. I like the addition of frozen peas. The variation I made last night was steaming some fresh asparagus, chopping it up into smaller pieces and added to the pasta at the last minute. So yummy!

    also used spaghetti rather than a shorter pasta. Delish!
