This dish could not be easier. The pasta and the delicious ingredients for the sauce all cook at the same time. This will be a meal that the entire family will enjoy. You can even add a protein source: chicken breast, shrimp, salmon, lean turkey. There are so many different options to really have this dish be a basic starter, then adding your own special twists by adding the protein. This recipe is adapted from Martha Stewart.
