This recipe was strikingly simple, especially since it had so few ingredients. Despite that, it took the full 30-40 minutes described to finish the dish. Here’s why: boiling a pot of water takes forever. Cooking the pasta, only 10 minutes. Adding the pasta water to the dish to create a sauce–the instructions said 1 Tbsp at a time. Since I had a double batch, that meant adding 32 Tbsp, which takes quite a while. In all honesty, I gave up and started splashing in small amounts after a few additions.
This was SO good, and SO easy, we will definitely be doing it again. Rave reviews all the way around!
