Here is a recipe for yummy pasta dish that you can make for dinner in 15 minutes. You can use other type of pasta if you want.

The one thing to be careful about with cooking this dish is that you need to save the starchy water that you cooked pasta in and add it to the dish later to make it moist to your liking.

If the dish is too watery, just cook it for another minute to thicken.

Also this meal needs to be eaten straight away, because it dries out quickly.
