WOW what a great pasta dish. I scaled back for 1 serve but could not get through a full serve so heated up the left overs the next day and added some extra parsley, crumbled walnuts and parmesan cheese to it and heated it in the microwave and enjoyed it both at dinner and lunch the next day, thank you celticevergreen, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
