Recipe time!

Well, we tried a new recipe tonight. I get SO excited when it's a good one, also, it's no coincidence that Kelly is doing a SUYL link up of main dishes, so I must add this to her rapidly growing list!

It's called:
I will post the recipe, but before I do, I must add, I never follow a recipe word for word. I like to personalize it to match our family's likes and disklikes. I will start by saying, I couldn't find spinach fettucine! Too bad, so sad right? I got tri color penne instead and it tasted just dandy, and I couldn't help but think, we added a few veggies with the different color pasta right? :)

Also, I didn't get the oil packed dried tomatoes, why? Because well, I will admit, I don't know what those are and I didn't want to search for them! :) Poof, be gone! Ha!!

Ok, moving on, here is the recipe:
Lucky for me, it's one I can look up online, instead of typing it all out from the one I printed! VOILA! ENJOY!
