Make it gluten-free: Use your favorite gluten-free pasta in place of the regular pasta in this dish.
Add veggies: You can always add more vegetables! Add some peppers, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, or even more sauteed mushrooms for an extra dose of veggies.
Add a protein: Want more protein? Add grilled chicken strips or fried tofu to this recipe to make it extra filling! I also like to substitute chickpea pasta to get even more protein.

How to Store Leftovers
Leftovers will save in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days. When you reheat the pasta, you may need to add a splash of cream or water to refresh the sauce.
