Delish. I reduced pasta by more than 1/2 & it was still enough for 6 side dishes for us. I left all other ingredients the same, I just used less pasta water. Liked the herbs used, thanks for sharing.

My family and I loved this recipe, my boys said it was better than eating out. It was easy to make, careful not to throw out the pasta water like I almost did, that is what will thicken the sauce. I breaded chicken breasts in Italian bread crumbs and fried in a bit of EVOO and it was a perfect meal, thanks for sharing

This dish is delicious and so easy to prepare. I used capellini, since that is what I had in the cupboard and used all Parmesan, as I didn't have any Romano. Otherwise, I made the recipe as directed. My husband commented that it didn't really need the addition of peas and carrots (he doesn't like vegetables) but apart from that, he said it was good. A pound of pasta makes enough for six main course servings so I will share some of the leftovers with my daughter so that she has a night off from cooking.

We really enjoyed this pasta dish--simple and delicious. I diced a couple of handfuls of baby-cut carrots, so I probably added more than the equivalent of one regular carrot. And I know I added more Parmesan and Romano--I can rarely resist more cheese. :) Otherwise, no changes to the recipe. This was one of the wonderful recipes I chose for the Pick a Chef game--thanks for posting it!

What an incredible dish! I left out the shallots because we don't like them; used angel hair instead of linguine because that's what we prefer. I also left out the romano cheese only because the sauce appeared to be getting REALLY thick. I fully cooked the peas and added about 1 1/2 cups of pasta water to the sauce. This recipe has SO much flavour & I love the "hidden" vegetables. The only problem was that there wasn't nearly enough sauce for all that pasta. Since there are only the 2 of us, I will just cook half the pasta next time.

Amazing how good this simple and simply made sauce is. It's also great because the ingredients are always on hand.
