One of my husband’s and my favorite things to do is cook together – although he’s been the one cooking more than I lately. I’ve been running around the state like a mad woman recently for work – and thank goodness for a great husband that can cook. I always say food taste better when you don’t have to cook it!
This recipe has become my husband’s “staple” meal. He can have it ready in no time and it taste so very good! He found this recipe on Food Network and decided to give it a try because it reminded him of a pasta dish from one of his favorite restaurants in Springfield, Zio’s.
