    I am planning to make this for dinner tonight. In reviewing the recipe there is instruction to add a toss of “pasta sauce” but that is not a listed ingredient. Do you mean just a toss of store bought pasta sauce or pasta water?

    Hi Dianne,

    Good catch! "pasta sauce" was a typo it should be pasta water!
