Recipe by ellie_

I came across this recipe and thought it looked great for a harried week night supper. I also think this is very adaptable to what is on hand in the frige. Recipe source: Redbook (July 2005)

This is a GREAT MEAL! I am doing Weight Watchers and I adapted it a little. I used Fat Free Ricotta Cheese and Barilla Plus pasta. The entire meal was only 7 points and tasted so delicious. This is going to be a regular meal, even when the diet is done.
