An easy recipe for rotini pasta with olive oil, herbs, and italian seasoning.


This recipe was born in Costco, of all places.

Not that that is surprising considering how much time and money I spend there in a month.

And to top it all off, all the ingredients used in this pasta recipe were purchased at Costco...Not a huge shocker though really.

Anyway, a taste testing station offered a small portion of pasta tossed with oil and herbs. And oh goodness, it was so tasty! My oldest son gobbled it right up. But I'm pretty sure he gobbles up all pasta.

Naturally, I had to recreate it at home and it's become a staple at our house ever since.
