This is a recipe that was in my Sunday newspaper and the American Profile by Kathy Dicharo of Bryan, TX. She says: "Where I work we have Food Day every other month when everyone brings a dish. This pasta dish is a simple recipe with just a few ingredients, but it is big on flavor. I use bowtie pasta because it looks so pretty but any kind of pasta can be used. This recipe is a favorite for all the workers!". It is true that this is DELICIOUS and very rich.The article said 12 servings and it is rich enough that 12 is possible but they would be very small servings. We 8 dinner-sized servings.
