Truly delicious. We enjoyed this pasta dish very much. Nice flavor and a lovely texture, the sauce coated the pasta beautifully. Served with baked chicken and candied cherry tomatoes for a truly wonderful meal. I was out of peas so I substituted with corn niblets, they were great in the dish. Thanks for sharing.
