Pasta is a big part of my life. For one, you can eat it with cheese. For two, it is quick and easy to make for one or for twenty. For two and half, it is inexpensive. For three, it makes for great leftovers. For four, it is delicious- but only when done properly.

My phil-asta-phy is simple:
The pasta itself is merely a vehicle for a delcisiously chunky red sauce, chock full of additional spices and vegetables– maybe even meat, if you’re feeling particularly carnivorous. And just when you think you have enough sauce to cover your pasta, pour more on.
