I probably have another pasta dish very similar to this somewhere on my blog already, but I'll tell you, I was just too lazy to check. So if you notice that this is a double post... please don't tell me :)
Simple, light and perfect for a weeknight meal... especially during the summer. I haven't given you exact amounts on everything and I apologize for that. I thought I had written the recipe down, but when I went to look for it, I found out that I was completely wrong. Oh well, I think you can figure this one out yourself. It's so very simple and so worth trying.
