"Is my version of this recipe missing an ingredient? There was no sauce at all, which made for very dry pasta. I was thinking of doubling the cumin and adding some fresh salsa to coat the pasta."

"Easy and tasty! We enjoyed this recipe. Next time I will use less cumin and double the sauce. Will definitely make this again and again!"
