    I am betting you can smell this cooking from all the way over there ! The parmesan and cheddar cheeses blend to perfection and the pasta…well, it just feeds the soul. The portion size will be cut down dramatically to come in at 400 calories if it were not for the FiberGourmet pasta.

  • Made this the other night and it was so yummy! I couldn’t find yellow summer squash (supermarket was out and I wasn’t about to make multiple stops with my toddler!). It was super yummy and a great sized portion!!

    Will definitely make again.
