Whole Wheat Penne Cheesy Pasta with Arrabbiata Sauce

Who doesnt like Pasta ? Its a kids delight especially.. While I
prefer the white sauce, the husband the elder kid love it in Tomato sauce. This
time, I made in homemade Arabbiata Sauce (recipe soon – my BM friends know why

So if your family loves this dish, do give it a try. Goes with
most breads. I served it with Onion Olive Focaccia.
