Proud To Have 5 Star Ratings Across Board! (Google, Yelp, Facebook and Trip Advisor)
This is by far one of my favorite pasta sauces and one of the most simple and quick to prepare. After mixing all the ingredients in a food processor add the hot boiling pasta (your favorite one. I use gluten free ) and it will just come together. A perfect meal Ready to serve!
