You guys are going to go NUTS when you see how easy this recipe is. Like real deal easy peasy dinner that dirties only 1 pot and comes together in basically 20 minutes.

This is one of those meals you are going to keep coming back to over and over again. It is delicious and one of Jordan’s personal favorites to make. As he likes to say “this sh!t is restaurant quality” and to be honest – it really is. The flavors and texture are on point and you will think you are eating dinner at some fancy Italian restaurant. Meanwhile you could be sitting in your apartment with your 2 babies like we are – ha!

Ezra also gobbles this recipe right on up. He is the ultimate “pat-ta” king over here. As soon as he sees it in the store, he goes nuts. But then again he goes nuts for most food haha!

I hope you guys love this dish as much as we do. I cannot wait to hear what you think!!

  1. Recipe was SO easy to make and clean up, and delicious! Love the simplicity of the recipe and the ingredients. I ended up using only half of the specified water and broth for fear that the pasta would be too watery, and it was the right call for me at least.

  2. Delicious! Used GF Spaghetti and added spinach at the end. This one will be on my list of go-to easy dinners.
