I does’t take a lot of ingredients, money or time to make this simple but delicious pasta sauce, you also have 3 options Vegan, meat (bolognese) or fish, I love them all. This recipe is customized to my liking, feel free to add anything you think will make it more yummy to your tummy 🙂 like wine (sometimes I do), pancetta (I don’t eat pork but I have seen people add) …….. be creative
