Poppy Seed Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Parsley

An easy and somewhat different side dish.... or meatless main dish. Or even add some leftover cooked chicken or ham and it's a main dish.

After making this once a month for the last year and a half, I have changed it to use 16 oz pasta and 5 tbsp butter. Thanks for sharing a very good recipe.
