This really is the perfect side dish for any meat you cook.

Actually, my grandson Antonio loves his pasta anyway we make it.

Everyone likes an occasional tomato sauce less pasta and this one plain is easy to make, fun shape to eat and even great heated up the next day.

I like to keep this on hand for leftover chili to pour over too!
