    sofie-a-toast's Note:

    I made this up, inspired by a recipe from Food and Wine. While this looks like a lot of vinegar, don't worry! By boiling it, the acidity goes away and a thick, semi-sweet/savory syrup is left.

      This is a super easy and very flavorful pasta dish! I used whole wheat fusilli instead of penne, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for a great recipe!
