“This recipe was featured on the cover of the March issue of Canadian Living. It looked so good, I had to try it. I'm glad I did as it is absolutely delicious. It comes together very quickly and reheats well, which is important to me as I always seem to have leftovers. I made it with occhi di lupo, which is another short pasta that is similar to ditali, but you can also substitute penne or elbow macaroni.”
