This is a very flavorful and easy-to-prepare dish, great for busy weeknights. It is from a 1990 cookbook called "365 Easy One-Dish Meals".

loof, you have a real winner here. It was the walnuts that grabbed my attention and I really wasn't too sure what to expect from their addition. I loved them! the crunch adds a great texture element and their flavor blends so well with the rest of the savory ingredients. I might be sticking walnuts in everything now!. I really needed to trim back the fat and I did that by using far free liquid coffee with a 1/2 tsp of cornstarch stirred in to that I added 3 or 4 drops of butter extract. I made a single serving (even weighed the pasta) and it was completely satisfying. Another thing I loved was the time it takes to make. It's so quick that you don't need to hesitate to make it on a hot summer evening. Thanks for posting this loof. Made for Photo Tag.
