Hello my name is Leah and I'm addicted to balsamic vinegar. I think I might have a little problem. I don't post too many healthy recipes on here but this one is too good not to share. This makes a big bowl of pasta and you would think that it could serve about 8 adults but we all got seconds so there for it only served 4. Pair it with some garlic bread and you have a great meal!
