I love this recipe! I first found it in my Pasta cookbook a few years back. It's a favorite in our house. Glad to see it here as a couple of my friends wanted the recipe and I didn't want to type it out. Thanks for sharing:)
Some changes I have made to this before is using bacon or pancetta and doubling the amounts called for. I have chopped italian parsley and mixed in. Adding diced tomatoes and sliced mushrooms are yummy too.
Very good recipe. This is definitely a keeper. Very quick and easy. The only thing that I did differently was add mushrooms and I used egg noodles instead. My boys loved this. Thanks so much for posting!
It's rare to find a recipe that is so easy to prepare and so delicious!!! It's a definite keeper!! YUMMY!!!!
