Meet the fastest and most delicious pasta dish. An irreplaceable Italian classic to which I added sage stewed in butter and roasted almonds, their flavor and crunch add just the right contrast to the pasta. This dish has everything I like, it’s tasty, full of wonderful flavors and the bonus here is that this could not be easier to put together.
