  • Allow the mixture to reduce for approx. 15 minutes on medium-high heat. Stir occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, you should cook your pasta according to box instructions. (Note: Cook the noodles adente, so it can finish cooking in our sauce).

  • Finally, add your cooked pasta into the sauce. Stir around and coat evenly. Plate the noodles and garnish with a few sprinkles of green onion.
