Makes 10 servings (this is what we got out of it)
This was a very tasty pasta dish. It seemed so simple and yet had excellent flavor. The recipe says it makes 4 servings, I don’t know if I could have eaten that much of a portion. At dinner time we each had 1 serving (6) and then a few had seconds and we still had some left to put in the fridge. Those are the types of meals I look for!
