Pesto Capellini with Red Sauce

This recipe couldn’t have been any easier. It’s from Wegmans Menu magazine (comes out maybe 4 times a year), and of course, features all sorts of food found at Wegmans. Feel free to substitute your own favorite brands! With this recipe, you are basically mixing two spaghetti sauces (with yummy results). This one is great for those nights when you have to get dinner on the table quickly.
