I recently had a back log of Southern Living Magazines waiting for me to go through. When I came across this pasta recipe, I just knew it was one I couldn't let get away without trying. I am posting it here so I will always know where to find it! This dish makes a great main course or side dish. I prepared this dish as soon as I had all the ingredients on hand and I have to say, it is as delicious as it sounds! This is a very easy recipe to add your desired amount of chicken or shrimp, if you like. I hope you think it looks as tempting as I did ; )!
