Expert Tips

Refrigerated fresh pastas are convenient time-savers because they cook in just minutes. But you can also use 9 ounces of dried fettuccine; cook as directed on the package.

Substitute your favorite frozen vegetable for the peas.

To serve pasta hot, pour hot water into the serving bowl a few minutes before pasta is done. Just before draining the pasta, pour out the water and wipe the bowl dry.
