    Not bad and so very fast. I held back putting in the full suggested amount of reserve water from the pasta as I was afraid it would be too runny, but turns out I should have maybe added a little's all adjustable to preference. Very tasty!

    Did not need the reserve water from the pasta a bit runny. Very tasty though.
