“There are actually many variations you can create with this recipe, but this is the version I always come back to. I used to always make this with my leftover homemade tomato sauce, but we enjoyed it so much, I had to make it more often with store-bought sauce. It is like making a pizza with pasta, instead of dough, so you know the possibilities are endless.”
