"I love the holiday season because it's the time of the year when families get together, enjoy traditions, and make memories to last a lifetime. I love spending time with my family; cooking meals together - especially pasta - is one activity that we all look forward to and enjoy.

Pasta brings back memories of the holidays because my family and I always turned to these delicious and hearty noodle dishes when the weather turned cold. Something about the warm, comforting sauces that smother the pasta always warms my heart and reminds me of my family.

I decided to make this pasta because it's simple, comforting, and tossed in a peppery arugula pesto. The creamy goat cheese finishes off the delicious dish!"
