RECIPE BACKSTORY
I am sure you are all in this situation...standing in the middle of your kitchen, trying to come up with something to make for dinner. I decided to put this all together and my boyfriend loved it and now wants it all the time. Experiment with different pastas, as well as adding more broth for a more "soupier" dinner. I also like a touch of grated cheese with mine - my boyfriend doesn't. Enjoy!
