My family loves, loves, LOVES pasta. Really, no exaggeration whatsoever! My kids loved pasta before we could get them to eat much else. My hubby and I almost always order pasta dishes when eating out, just to compare differences, get ideas, and to enjoy every bite. So when I come across a pasta dish that’s both quick, cost-effective, AND absolutely yummy, it’s filed in with our favorites!
