Being Italian, I appreciate a good pasta dish. Pasta is an ingredient that can withstand a lot of flavor and ingredients. I love taking whatever is in my refrigerator and coming up with a special masterpiece. This recipe combines lots of vegetables and beer to create a delicious and flavorful dinner. The cooked beer adds a unique flavor dimension to the sauce.
