Special One Dish Pasta

Fredda Rosenbaum


One day I wanted a quick throw-together supper that wouldn't dirty up every dish in the house. Therefore, I selected yummy ingredients, and I cooked it all in one deep skillet. My husband raved about it, and he insisted that I write down the recipe before I forgot it.
