I love pasta. So much it's not even funny. It's only natural for me to want to boil some noodles and have a dish. Comfort zone 101. 
This is a light pasta that you can put a veggie in and call it quits. I use spinach because, well, I always have spinach! And I love spinach. This will leave you feeling fresh, not overstuffed and blah. Light, summer, happy!
