I found a recipe on called mozzarella pasta penne. It called for canned tomatoes, but I omitted it and came up with my own version of it. I think, you too can come up with your variation. How much of each ingredient you use depends on your appetite! I used the smalles amount of everything, but the largest is the one given by the website.

This was a very simple light meal. I followed the recipe using the fresh tomatos and basil from my garden. I also added zucchini as well. Next time I think I may add some chicken. Thanks for a great recipe.
