I got this out of JoAnna M Lund's "Cooking for TWO" cookbook. I've made a few minor changes, which I'll note in the directions.

This will not take longer to fix than it does to eat it!

You can find the ingredients in ANY small grocery!!

It is nutritous, virtuous and delicious!!!

    Using the Dreamfields Pasta will reduce the number of carbs and using the vegetable crumbles will increase the fiber content. We usually get 4 generous servings, but I'm guestimating the uncooked pasta, so my measurement of it is probably off.
