Mom What's for Dinner Pasta

"I made this tonight when my kids and b/f asked what was for dinner, and there was nothing in the house (I badly need to go shopping) but as I work I was waiting for tomorrow (sat). Well I threw this together and everyone loved it."

Hello all I am a sahm to two beautful girls(5 and 6). Also sharing my home is my DH, our 3 dogs(boxer,pitt, and something else mixes all 3 of them) our cat Tinkerbell and 13 ferrets. I love to cook and try new things. I make my own cookbooks from recipes that i get off line. I love anything chocolate and am a big tea drinker(both iced and hot). I am a muncher but am trying to get better. I love to read and listen to almost all kinds of music, sorry not a big country fan. And i am a world traveler. Thanks to family all over the world. I would have to say that my fav chef is Giada De Laurentiis, i love her show and want all of her cookbooks (i have yet to buy one but i will). Other then that I love to collect kitchen gadets, unique necklaces and rings. Thats me in a nutshell. The only thing I drink is Amaretto Sours and my best friends know that I do not normally have any Disaronno in the house so its always a nice surprise when I get a bottle sent to me.
