Well, yes, if we were going to pick at nits, I agree that those would be important. Except changing a non-dairy-farm dish made by tossing ingredients together to cook in the residual heat of the cooked pasta and meat into a dairy-farm dish of pasta with a cooked sauce applied at service is not so much a nit as a land lobster.

It's not an addition begged by logic and the character of the dish is completely changed.
