    Hannah was kind enough to make this for our family when our youngest son had surgery last week. Everyone enjoyed it, well everyone except little Peter who is on a liquid diet. The next day when I asked the kids what they wanted for lunch they all replied, “Hannah’s Pasta!” You know it’s a good recipe when six kids all agree they want the leftovers!! Thanks so much Hannah.
