I found this recipe on a can of S & W Ready Cut Diced Tomatoes and it looked like something my family would like. I used mild salsa but it was still a little spicey so Bob and Zach loved it, Cort hasn’t tried it yet, I tried it and liked it but it was a little spicey. I’m leaving on Monday to go work on a movie out of town for the whole week so I’ve been spending some time today making some food for the family to eat while I’m gone. Bob requested pasta so I made this one which is hot and another one (next post) which is cold since you never know how the weather is going to be around here this time of year.
