Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce
Last weekend it snowed in New York, about 4-6 inches. I felt snowed it. Too lazy to shovel, too lazy to go out, and too lazy to change into normal clothes. I then got hungry for Linner (lunch/dinner). I wanted to make something fresh, light, and easy. I present to you a delicious, non-stressful, healthy meal. You’ll surely find these ingredients in your refrigerator/pantry.
