Simple Summer Pasta

This pasta is another favorite in my house. It makes the perfect meal when you are in the mood for something light. I don't know about you, but when it's really hot outside I don't want a heavy meal. This dish is easy to prepare and weight watchers friendly so you can enjoy it without the guilt.
