You'll be pleasantly surprised at the wonderful taste of this pasta. My grandchildren
always want me to make this pasta when they visit. I've used this recipe on several television shows on my book tours.
It smells so great that the studio crew comes running for a taste! Sometimes I throw in some chicken or shrimp to jazz it up
