quick and easy
Quick and easy dish for a last-minute or weeknight meal! I substituted arrabiata sauce for the cream--it kept it lighter and added a little more spice. Delicious! It will definitely be a family staple.
My boys favorite dish. The one thing I must make every time they are home from college.
Great recipe! The whole family loves it. One of our favorites. We have even added chicken to it-it's delicious!
We LOVE this recipe just as written. It is our teenage boy's favorite and most requested recipe. So easy and tasty!
