This recipe comes from the wonderful Donna Hay, from her meals in 10mins. Hint to keep it to minutes "The second you walk in the door pop a large pot of water on the stove. By the time it boils you'll be set to throw in the pasta, start on the sauce and eat 10 minutes later" Donna Hay. Love her food, always fresh with a zesty flavor.
