This was a hit. I cut the recipe in half and used all olive oil since that's what I had. But I only used 1 Tbsp of oil to cut down the fat and made up for it by using about 1/4 cup of the pasta water. I also left out the salt and let people salt it at the table. It made 4 servings. Will definitely make this again.
