The family loved this! Two of our favourites, pasta and seafood wrapped up in one dish...gotta love that! I followed all of the ingredients but switched up the method a bit because my husband is a commuter and rarely gets home on time. I made the sauce first but didn't add the seafood or the veggies until the end. Cooked the pasta last so it wouldn't get over done. The sauce is incredibly rich but so delicious. The next time I make it, I am going to add some garlic to the sauce as I just can't resist garlic. Thanks so much Connie!
