Yep, you just have to add more salt an pepper. Make sure you saute some garlic first too. Don't add all your salt right away, wait until your Parmesan cheese melts first. Then taste. If it tastes bland it's because there's not enough salt, or cheese. You want a hefty amount of cheese in there.
You just have to cook on medium to medium-low and stir so it doesn't boil over. It may take as long as 20 minutes or so to thicken.
If you really want to boost the flavor chop up some sun dried tomatoes that have been in olive oil. Add those along with the oil that comes off them. NICE flavor in there!
