20 Minute Pasta Dish

This is a quick 20 minute Pasta Dish that I wiped up on a whim. This dish is packed with flavor, fills you up and only takes 20 minutes to make. What I love about this recipe is that the ingredient are every day items you would find in you pantry ( pasta, oregano, garlic etc). Also after a long day of work who wants to send hours cooking dinner? All the more reason to try this recipe, it is quick easy and packed full of flavor.
