  • Reduce heat to low and add parmesan cheese, stirring frequently.

Notes

Use the highest quality cheese you can, it will melt much better and stay combined with the sauce. 
I usually use this amount of sauce for 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of pasta.
If the sauce becomes thick, add a splash of cream or half-and-half, or even milk to thin it out a little bit.
When reheating the sauce, do so over low heat in a saucepan.
If re-heating pasta with this sauce on it, microwave until the chill has just been taken off, add a splash of cream, stir, and microwave until warmed through.
