Who doesn’t love a delicious 30-minute meal? This pasta dish has become a favorite to anyone that has tried it! It’s so simple, yet can be made a little more hearty with the quick addition of grilled chicken breast strips or Italian sausage. If you need a dish to take to a friend, neighbor, new mom, or just something to throw together – this is the dish for you!
I’m in the crowd that has a hard time deciding between alfredo and marinara. More often than not alfredo wins. Recently my husband and I have been hooked on frozen cheese ravioli and tortellini, when he first made them for us he heated up both sauces: alfredo and marinara. Somehow or another both sauces ended up getting mixed together and I LOVED it. When I saw this recipe I knew I would love it too. It’s the perfect idea. Bringing two favorites together. We only buy whole wheat pasta – so that’s the only substitution I made! Other than that, it was exactly what I hoped it to be.
