Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Enjoy this creamy dish with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Special Extra
Add 1 lb. cooked cleaned shrimp to the drained cooked pasta along with the tomato mixture and pine nuts.
Purchasing Fresh Tomatoes
Ripe tomatoes should be firm and free of any soft spots, bruises or signs of mold. They should have bright shiny skins, feel heavy for their size and boast a lovely fresh tomato fragrance.
