Pinwheel Pasta Bake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Luschka

I add more parsley than the recipe calls for, cause I prefer it.

This is a wonderful pasta dish! Nice and light, perfectly seasoned and not overly-cheesy. I couldn't find the pinwheels so I used medium-sized shells. This is a simple dish made with things I always have on hand, so it makes a great easy lunch or quick week-night dinner. Thanks for posting this recipe!
