Delicate tasting but extremely flavorful. Made quite a few modifications, though. I went easy on the olive oil, used fettucine instead of tagliatelle (couldn't find any today), added some leftover baby spinach and boosted the sauce to pasta ratio by using 1/3 the pasta and 2/3 the sauce for the two of us. This was easy and quick too. Don't overdo the parmesan as it will overwhelm the sauce. Thanks very much for posting:D
