READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Geema

I just discovered this recipe from Cafe Luna in Shelton, Washington, and it's on the menu for this week. Since I can't imagine pasta without Parmesan cheese, I might try some grated on top.

Very good pasta dish. I added fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top and it made it even better. I will defently make it again.
