Cavatappi with Creamy Tomato Sauce

 Savor the flavors of Florence in my Cavatappi with Creamy Tomato Sauce. No passport required! As some of you may know, I’ve dubbed myself a “reluctant exerciser,” and finding motivation is essential when you’re in the kitchen all day with amazing food.

All cooked in one skillet. Best part of that is there’s only one pan to clean when dinners done. I have to say, that’s huge for me. No giant pasta pot, colander and then skillet as well to wash up!
