I love making pastas & Italian foods, but wanted to mix it up. Found the inspiration for this on another recipe site, but then changed a lot to suit my taste. My son & I loved it! And, this is my own photo of how I made it. Not a lot like the original version I found, but I didn't come up w/ the entire idea on my own so always like to mention that. :)
