    This sounds really good. I think I will put it on next week’s menu. Will you let us know how it turned out?

    Amy, it was really good! It’s light and the sauce kind of soaks into the pasta, but the flavor is sweet and spicy. I really liked it. Todd liked it too. Fuzz liked it for the first few bites then decided towards the end of the meal that she didn’t.

    Genie, it’s definitely not something I’d eat as a main dish because like you, I need protein. I served it as a side dish with chicken that I’d marinated in a marinade from Cooking Light.
