This is an easy and fast recipe.There is no need to get out another saucepan if you make this no-cook sauce. It is vegetarian but can be made for meat eaters by simply adding some rotisserie chicken from the deli. Serve with crsipy, warm Italian bread and a salad of greens.

This is awesome! 10 minutes is right - you whip up the sauce in less than the time it takes you to get water boiling and boil the pasta. I added fresh parley to the sauce and threw in some carmelized onions while I was tossing the pasta and sauce together....and sprinkled on red pepper flakes before serving for some zing. This could be modified a lot of different ways - thanks for posting!
