This is from Cooking Light's best of 2010. This was wonderful!!! I altered this recipe to my family's tastes. This is a drier dish the way I make it. If you want it saucier, decrease the pasta or increase the tomatoes. This is great with/without crushed red peppers!! FYI...ROMANO IS KEY IN THIS RECIPE!!!
