003 (Small)This recipe has been ALL over google reader lately, and I thought it would be the perfect summer dish.  I was right!  This was sooo good – you really didn’t miss a heavy sauce, or any chicken,meatball, or other meat you would put with pasta.  Mike even liked it .. ALOT – he gave it a 9 out of 10!  PS – Only one recipe on this blog got a 10 out of 10 from him… Guess which one! LOL  PS  – NOTHING has got lower than an 8, so either he really likes these recipes, or he is just trying to be nice! HAHA  I made some adjustments – below 🙂
