I'm enjoying my second day off from school in a row due to a gross ice storm. While I enjoy the free time off... I'm starting to get a little bored. I also can't help but think about the money I could be making... Today was supposed to be the first day of my new tutoring job. I'm still considered a substitute even though I'm not "subbing" for anyone... so needless to say, I don't get paid for snow/ice days :( For once in my life I'm hoping that school does not get called off tomorrow!
This recipe is for a simple side dish that the fiancé and I have fallen in love with. Its nothing brilliant and I'm sure a lot of people make this all the time, but its new to us. I tend to always go towards a potato dish as one of our sides. I've been looking for other options and this seemed scrumptious.... and it was! We didn't follow the recipe exactly because I didn't have parmesan cheese so we had to use finely shredded mozzarella. We also didn't really follow the measurements... we just threw everything in and added what we thought it needed. I'm including the original measurements but feel free to do your own thing. We enjoyed this along with a mozzarella stuffed chicken that was to die for. I plan on sharing that tomorrow!
Italian Tossed Pasta

Cook the pasta according to the packaged directions and drain. Transfer the pasta to a serving bowl and toss with the rest of the ingredients.
