Words to the Wise:
I love this dish and so does the family. It is still a pasta dish so the kids love it but it has different flavors than another spaghetti dish. I have also added black beans to this recipe in the past. It just adds more texture and bumps up the fiber.
This recipe is from Kraft Food and Family.

This is a fun recipe! I don't know that the wee ones would go for it, as they refuse all sauces, but it certainly sounds good to me. I like the addition of the beans, too. Anywhere I can sneak them in, I do.

And thank you so much for visiting my blog yesterday during my SITS day. It was so much fun to see all the comments, and so many had such nice things to say. I hope you enjoyed yourself and come back to visit again soon!
