Author's Notes

Yields 4-5 servings.

Let it cool completely and transfer it to an airtight container before putting it in the fridge. Consume it within 3 to 4 days. Keep in mind that once chilled, the pasta will absorb more sauce. Therefore, when reheating add a bit more heavy cream or beef broth.
