I've been cooking this recipe for so long, and it is so simple, that I have often overlooked posting it. We had it with our grilled chicken this week, and finally I'm putting it online. Marcella Hazan says this method of cooking pasta has eclipsed all others as the favorite amongst Northern Italians. And I must say it's among the favorites in my family too. It makes a fantastic accompaniement to any grilled meat or vegetable. We use Barilla Plus pasta, which makes it a much healthier side than if prepared with plain semolina (white) pasta.
