We needed a quick lunch before an impromptu trip to the zoo. This was so simple, fast, and tasty! I did not have any leeks on hand, so I used 2 cloves of fresh, shaved garlic. I also swapped out 2 Tbsp of the olive oil for 2 Tbsp of organic coconut oil and I also exchanged the salt for coarse ground garlic salt. Finally, I topped it all with freshly cracked black pepper and shredded Parmesan cheese. Quick, delicious, and a hit with all four of my kids!

Can't quit figure this one out. I always have Barilla pastas on hand. This was lacking in the flavor department. I'm not quite sure what to add to give it the flavor it needs but I'll work on it.
