Hints & Tips
This very easy-to-make and delicious pasta recipe and photo were shared with me by Karen Calanchini, Food
Stylist and Photographer, of Redding, CA.
Karen says, "If you have some homemade frozen
tomato sauce in your freezer, this dish is a snap to make. If not, use a good
brand of Marinara sauce. This recipe is great for kids on the run or tired moms! Serve with a fresh green salad and some crusty bread."
