Really enjoyed this excellent and quickly made supper dish. I followed the recipe, but used penne rather than farfalle, and added in some sliced mushrooms. Simple and delicious, ideal after a long day at work when you want supper on the table quickly. Loved the addition of pinenuts :) This super dish was made for I Recommend tag game, thank you Mary!
