I can only say how many times that my husband and I are trying to watch what we eat! For fear of really boring you, I will steer away from that line of thought today. :)
Instead, I will say that we have been focusing on quick meals. This meal is definitely that... especially if you have another "chopper" in the kitchen. :) My husband and I agreed that it is a really nice, light tasting pasta, but it needs a "little something". Because we were both really hungry, we didn't bother trying to figure it out. Let me know what you would do to give it a little "mmmff".
So for a quick (and healthy ;) meal, give it a try. Don't forget to comment on how to make it better. I love suggestions!!! :)
