If my boys could pick one thing for me to make every week for dinner, it would be this pasta.
It is delicious!
It is so simple!
It will rock your world!
The first time we had this we were up at my parent’s cabin. From that night on it has been my go-to pasta. I don’t even know the “official” name of it. We just call it either grandma’s pasta or cabin pasta. I think my mom got the recipe from an issue of Taste of Home magazine.
I have made this when we’ve had friends over for dinner. I made it for a teacher dinner at my son’s elementary school. I made it for my husband’s whole family while we were on our vacation in Virginia Beach . . . .EVERY time it has been a winner and EVERY time I get asked for the recipe. Now when my friend’s make it for their families, they call it Jodi’s pasta.
Whatever you decide to call this, I promise you will love it! It will become your new favorite pasta!
