I threw this together the other day and was pleased with how colorful and yummy it was. Serve with a side of bread and a tall glass of V8.

This was a nice lunch - not outstanding, but satisfying. It was great for the kids! They ate it right up! I didn't have tomatoes on hand, and I did add some garlic. I used tri-color rotini.
