This sauce makes enough to generously coat 1 pound of pasta, but could easily be stretched to coat 1 1/2 pounds of pasta, depending on how saucy you like your pasta.We usually reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce for dipping breadsticks or drizzling over chicken and toss a pound of cooked pasta in the remaining sauce.Do not use the powdery Parmesan cheese in this recipe - freshly shredded or a bag of shredded Parmesan will work best.
