Pasta Recipes

Pasta recipes are some of my very favorites to create!  I developed a super simple whole wheat pasta dish that is packed with my family’s favorite ingredients. I took everyone’s favorite BLT and made it into a fun pasta….used spinach for the “L” You could also use arugula or kale. All you need is about 30 minutes for this dinner, hope you enjoy!
