"Wonderful flavor to this dish. However, if made as written, it's way too dry. I would recommend either doubling the sauce ingredients, or cutting in half the amount of pasta. I added chopped celery to it, which also gave it a great flavor. I will definitely make it again, next time with more sauce."
