  • The pasta in the middle of the skillet and underneath will be more tender than the outside pasta when done. It’s okay if those pieces are a bit toastier and less soft. The inside will be plenty soft.
  • Feel free to add in more favorite ingredients such as prosciutto, onions, peas, or whatever your family might love.
