Easy Weeknight Dinner!

This is the perfect dish for busy weeknights, I really appreciated the fact that it came together so quickly. I also really appreciated the fact that it’s packed with fresh tomatoes – tomatoes are one of my favorite ingredients. And I loved that the hot pasta just cooked them ever so lightly.
