Well... I think I created the most delicious pasta plate that the world has ever tasted.
It was amazing and it was all kind of thrown together by yours truly.
Here is the recipe so you can go home, eat it and then light candles to the food gods for letting me discover it. Also, be warned: you will probably gain a pound from eating it. Period.
There is no way around it. Embrace the fatness; it loves you.

Yeilds 4 Servings. I'm sure you could double the recipe and make plenty but we only 2 people in our household and don't like to see food go to waste.
HA. That was a good one. Like it would have lasted longer than 24 hours.
Anyway, enjoy it! we did.
