This is so easy peasy and takes a total of 30 minutes including cooking the pasta!! Super easy and delicious. My boyfriend hates pretty much everything in this meal but when I cooked it together for him, he said it was the best pasta ever! I kid you not. Such a great combo and it feels nice and light for a summer night!
