    1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

    I recently submitted this recipe, and just wanted to add that f the pasta seems dry, add a little olive oil or vegetable stock. Non-vegans can top with freshly-grated romano cheese for a delicious dish. Non-vegetarians can add chicken and bits of crisy bacon or pancetta for a recipe closer to the original version. Anyway you make it, it's delicious!  -  24 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    In addition to being stunning in its presentation, this was also full of rich and lively flavor. And what an interesting and creative blend of ingredients! I followed the recipe without deviating from it at all (except for using fresh thyme) and was rewarded well. This was excellent, a great side dish for our prime rib along with "Broccoli Rabe with Roasted Peppers," also from this site.  -  18 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
