      While this was a good basic recipe, it was missing something and was a bit dry. So at the end, I added in a couple of tablespoons of butter, plus a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, mixed well, and that seemed to do the trick! Everyone loved the dish, even with me making it with multigrain pasta instead of white pasta.

      What a great meal. I thought that there wouldn't be enough oil to coat the pasta but I made this as written and trusted in the recipe. I"m glad I did! The wife and kids loved it and asked me to add it to the regular rotation. The leftovers were great the next day, too.
