    Easy to make and everyone liked it!

    Made the recipe as is and it tasted great! I used a mixture of bow tie and shell pasta because I didn't have enough bow tie and didn't feel like going to the store. Also, you can always add to the recipe by adding fresh basil or oregano to amp up the flavor. Served this with a simple green salad and bread sticks. It was a hit with the family.

    It was good but everyone was scared to try it because of the eye balls. They tried it and had two plates of it!
