I was looking through some of the recipes that I had clipped and saved out of different magazines. I came across this one and thought it sounded pretty good, so I decided to put it here for safe keeping. The prep time includes cooking of the noodles. Submitted to "Zaar" on June 29th, 2006. I had originally Submitted this to "Zaar" on the above date and now I'm going to make it public on January 6th, 2007.

Thanks for this recipe. I am always looking for quick, easy, Italian recipes. Next time I will add more sauce as we like our stuff extra saucy. Great flavor, easy to put together, great tasting the next day too. Thank you!
