Our family and especially the kids LOVE pasta anytime during the week. And I think you'll love making this pasta dish for your family as much as we do, because you can make this pasta dish in practically 15 minutes. Saving you time and money.
It is a quick and easy way to put dinner or lunch on the table for the entire family! Summertime is wonderful for quick and easy dishes like this one to whip up especially during those hot summer days. And, if you are like me....getting tired of eating grilled BBQ meats for the past few days, then this is a nice change.
