Mom What's for Dinner Pasta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by buzzonesbirdie

I made this tonight when my kids and b/f asked what was for dinner, and there was nothing in the house (I badly need to go shopping) but as I work I was waiting for tomorrow (sat). Well I threw this together and everyone loved it.
