    We had this for dinner and it was great! Not only was it fast and easy, it made my kitchen smell like I’d been cooking for hours! We will definitely have this again soon!

    Thus recipe is soooo good! I serve this over linguine, so I triple the sauce. If you don’t, the pasta soaks it up too much.
