“I am always inspired on the internet by what I see, hear and read, TRUE! This makes for a VERY healthy tasty appetizer that is GREAT for entertaining too! NOTE: Amounts listed are approximate; adjust the recipe to suit how many or how few you would like to make too! I used and recommend Barilla Wholegrain pasta; has 3 times more fiber of regular pasta, healthy and tastes GREAT! I use tamari to reduce the salt content; a lot healthier too”
