Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
For a nice presentation, simply slide the meat, vegetables and sauce out of the skillet onto the cooked pasta.
Make Ahead
Get a head start on the next night's meal. Cook and drain 1 lb. pasta. Use half for this recipe, then cool the remaining pasta and toss with a little olive oil. Store in a resealable plastic bag in the refrigerator to enjoy another night.
Prepare using elbow macaroni, rotini, small pasta shells or penne.
