Author Notes

This is an easy, weeknight pasta dish based on Martha Stewart's One-pan Pasta featuring whole grain thin spaghetti. This pasta is a bit spicy, but great tasting. I feel that there isn’t enough dinners for two although there are many singles and couples out there who need an easy weeknight pasta dish, too. —Joyhartz
