Author Notes: We love cooking Italian cuisine.This dish is fun to prepare because instead of pouring the sauce over the pasta, we put the cooked and drained pasta into the pan with the sauce and stir it around until it is well covered. This can be done with many pasta dishes and makes them quick and easy to prepare. This sauce actually takes less cooking time than the pasta! In any event this dish is delicious and very colorful. —Tom and Anita Morgan
