“yummy delicious tomato, basil garlic based pasta sauce from a co-worker. after we made the recipe once her way, we made our own take on it to better suit our tastes by adding oregano, adding and simmering the meat in the sauce for an extended length of time, tripling the garlic, and adding the mushrooms and green peppers. Add what works for your family's tastes and you will hopefully create a pleasant surprise like we did! Im a sauce novice, so taking a friends and making it mine is a really fun task!”
