Simple Spaghetti

Ok, so this side dish is ridiculously easy and delicious. Simple to whip up, yet oh so flavorful. Try it. I bet you'll LOVE it! I didn't have any leftovers so it was obviously a hit. I've come to realize that pasta does not have to be drenched in marinara sauce to be good. I LOVE sauce, however, a "light" pasta is perfect when you're serving it as a side with more flavorful main dishes. It's delicious and not overpowering. Good stuff!

Light and fresh.

This pasta was the perfect side dish for my in-laws' 41st anniversary dinner.
