  1. Pour whole box of pasta into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter). Pour 3 cups of cold water into the pan, ensuring that the liquid covers the pasta. Turn the burner to high, then set your timer for 10 minutes (optional: add a bit of salt to taste).
  2. Cook on high, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Stir in sauce and cream, and continue to cook until desired consistency is reached, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Remove skillet from heat, top with fresh basil and cheese. Serve immediately.

Good recipe for the beginning cook. Very simple to make and a nice mellow taste. I followed the recipe exactly, but if I was to do it again, I would add in some extra garlic and perhaps some...

I was amazed by this recipe. This is a recipe suited to those with small children. If I could put a taste profile to this recipe, it would be something along the lines of stuff from a can (min...
