This is a comfort food from when we were kids. My mom would make this as a quick snack after school or for dinner.

Cook pasta in deep pot with salted water (if using peas, add 3 minutes before pasta is done) and drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid. Add remaining ingredients (except parsley and 2 Tbs. cheese) to cooked pasta in pot. Add reserved liquid a little bit at a time until you get the desired consistency. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and parsley.
