Pasta is definitely my go-to comfort food of choice. I have spent quite a bit of time in Italy—it’s my food vacation place of choice. For some reason eating pasta never seems to get old for me—probably because it’s the best thing ever.
This is a very simple and very traditional Italian pasta dish. It doesn’t have many ingredients, but the flavors blend together so perfectly, it’s just amazing. This is a dinner that doesn’t take long to make—you can have it on the table in under an hour—but it will taste like you’ve been working on the sauce for days.
