Caesar Pasta

I originally saw this recipe in either Self or Women’s Health and then modified it (of course) and we tried it last night for the first time.  It was light and fresh and really tasty so I thought I’d pass it along.  For those of you who know me, you’ll be proud to hear I even ate the tomatoes!  Enjoy!  Eat healthfully my friends and be active…it is a great day!
