    This was easy to make and follow. I wish that I had known that the sauce was supposed to be watery. I thought I ruined it somehow, but once you add the pasta the sauce is soaked into the pasta and it was perfect! LOL. Should've watched the video, right? When I make this the next time, I will follow some of the suggestions from other reviewers to give the sauce some kick. It was a little bland, but that's ok, you can always add more seasoning after you've tasted it.
