Found this recipe a long time ago and has been a family favorite.  I don’t think I’ve ordered this dish at Olive Garden before, but have used this recipe plenty of time because it’s SO easy and tasty at the same time.  I love my addition of broccoli into the sauce, but my husband is a purist and prefers the broccoli, steamed or boiled separately.   Whatever works in your family!

Recipe Notes

Family prefers broccoli cooked separately so I threw the broccoli in the boiling water for 5 minutes.  Removed broccoli with slotted spoon and then threw in the pasta to cook.
