  • Quick release and remove the lid, then switch to saute high. Reduce, stirring occasionally, until a thick sauce has formed, about 8-10 minutes.

Notes

To serve, heat up about 1-4 to 1/2 cup of sauce for each portion of pasta in a nonstick skillet. Cook the pasta until al dente, then transfer the pasta to the skillet. Toss until the pasta is well coated and glossy, then finish with extra cheese, red pepper flakes, and rosemary as desired.
