this is a really nice side dish. i added some paprika, thyme, and fresh parsley for color, and served this with roasted chicken. i will make this again as it is quick and easy for a weeknight dinner.

Great simple recipe using items I always have on hand. I didnt cook my onions much since I like the crunch they have. I used whole wheat pasta since thats what I had. Great recipe that can be played around with! Made for ZWT 3!
