I printed out the recipe and got a little confused when I realized there were no instructions for thickening the sauce. I don't know if that was supposed to be there and was left out, or if it is not supposed to be thickened, but I used a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch to thicken it (allowed to come to a boil, reduced, and melted in the parmesan), and it came out lovely. thanks
