This is one of my favorite quick and easy pasta recipes that my kids love. It's ready in less than 30 minutes and tastes great! You can use any pasta you like, but I prefer short noodles like penne or rigatoni.

I made this tonight. The only changes I made were I omitted the leeks because I don't care for them, and I served it over rice rather than with pasta.
