How to Warm the Pasta Serving Bowl
Few things lose heat faster than hot cooked pasta served in a cold bowl. To help keep the cooked pasta hot, preheat the serving bowl by pouring hot water into the empty bowl and letting it stand for a minute to warm up. Drain water and fill with cooked pasta just before serving.
Substitute frozen mixed vegetables for the peas.
