READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by PeytonandKaylansMama

Courtesy of Giada DeLaurentiis! I made this today after sitting on the recipe for quite some time. I am sorry I held on to it. It will be in my regular rotation from now on, it was easy, quick and very tasty. I will change a few things though...I will use tomatoes with Italian seasoning and maybe a little more cheese next time! I even think it would be good if you added some ricotta to the mix. There are a lot of possibilities, but it was good as it is written. I doubled the recipe and it was fine. Enjoy!

This recipe was quite good. I added a lot more pasta then one cup and added Italian seasoning. The second time I made it I also added artichoke hearts and it tasted great. I also added much more mozzarella the second time around since I love cheese. I really enjoyed the taste of the fresh parsley. Thanks for a great recipe!
