Pasta! A staple in my household. I always have at least 6 packages on hand, both regular and gluten-free.

This Italian version of a traditionally French dish is loosely-based on a dinner my mom used to make when I was growing up.

You can also eliminate the Kite Hill Ricotta which makes it a little less decadent.

I hope you enjoy this dish and invite you to leave your comments below.
