What is the suitable Pasta for this recipe? For this recipe, I use spaghetti noodles, but sometimes I switch it for any other pasta I have at hand.
Can I use any type of cheese? Use any cheese you prefer, adjust the amount according to your own taste.
What’s a chicken broth substitute? Using chicken broth in pasta can have a significant addition to your flavors, you can replace it with some beef broth, vegetable broth or you can simply fill up your pot with enough water to boil your sauce and pasta.

What about the sauce? In this recipe, I use fresh diced tomatoes but instead you can use some store bought marinara sauce, tomato paste or a homemade sauce.
