This recipe was so handy tonight. I needed something that used what I had in the pantry/freezer, and this fit the bill perfectly. Used canned tomatos and included their liquid instead of the pasta water (btw, the directions should read 1/4 cup pasta water in step 3). Also used onion instead of scallion as it was what I had on hand. Basically doubled all the sauce ingredients to use with 12 ounces of rotini. It came out a bit bland, but that is why it says to season w/ salt and pepper! Thanks dicentra!
