When we were transitioning from military life to civilian life, the kids and I headed to Tennessee a few months before Nick and he was left to fend for himself. The poor thing. He stayed with our friends and he started cooking recipes that I had saved to a Pinterest board for him. Once he got down to Tennessee, he helped cook dinner a lot - which really helped when I had a hard day pregnancy-wise. He actually had made this recipe in New York a few times before moving and it was one of the first things he wanted to make all of us when he got home. We really loved it (of course - it's Philly cheesesteak AND pasta)! :)
