This is a really easy pasta dish that is sure to please.

Meredith taught me this recipe when we lived together 11 years ago! She taught me to use frozen chopped onions (I hate chopping onions!) and I don't remember putting garlic in it but I will now. I haven't made it in a while but it sure sounds good so I think I'll add the stuff to make it to my grocery list. :)
