Hello friends! I hope everyone out there is having a fabulous week. Today I am sharing a recipe that I have had for a while and have been wanting to try out but have just not gotten around to it until now. Well guys, I can truly say I have been missing out! This dish is so delicious! It is a nice light pasta, with pecans that are sauteed with garlic and olive oil that remind me of roasted pecans. My son asked, “what’s so good about pasta and nuts?”…funny. If you are thinking the same, I promise you it is so much more. All of these flavors combined are just so scrumptious and I hope you will love it too! So here is the recipe. ENJOY!!!!!
