Here is another recipe I tweaked based on my family's preferences. It's been a favorite whenever I've prepared it, and family members always ask for seconds. You can vary the shape of pasta if wagon wheels are unavailable. We like this with a sweeter barbecue sauce, but it's good with pretty much any variety of barbecue sauce.

I like to serve this with cornbread muffins.
