Throughout my college years, I was poor and ate a lot of whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce. To try and switch things up, I would add different spices and discovered that curry and cinnamon taste amazing when paired with tomatoes. So switch up pasta night and give this family-friendly, easy, one-pot meal a try! If you’d like some extra protein, make it with your favorite meat.
