I was really craving pasta and meat sauce all day today so I figured I’d give it a try! I didn’t go shopping, just used things I had around the house. It turned out to be out of this world and very tasty! I picked fresh basil from the garden and some fresh tomatoes, made the dish taste even more homemade! I love Italian food so I figured why not take it home and make it healthier?
