Whilst the pasta is boiling, in a bowl add the contents of Bag 2 (sauce mix). Slowly pour in about ½ cup of water over the sauce mix stirring constantly to make a paste.
When the pasta is ready add the sauce mix and the contents of Bag 3 (herb mix) to the pasta, stir through. Cook for about 2 mins stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.
