Keeping Pasta Dishes Hot
Because the ingredients in this recipe are uncooked, they'll stay warmer if you toss them with the pasta in a prewarmed bowl. To warm your serving bowl, fill it with hot water and let it stand while the pasta is cooking. Pour the water out just before you're ready to add the pasta.
