Delicious Quick Pasta & Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Er Be3

Quick, easy, kids like it--tomato sauce, fresh basil, cheese. I made this for the first time tonight, have been neglecting the groceries. I made this from what I had in the kitchen. It was delicious, my 4 year old liked it too!

This was fabulous! It was easy to make and had a beautiful presentation. I put it in a classy serving bowl and saved some of the fresh basil to put on the top as garnish. Kids loved it, and ate a ton!
