Last Sunday was a nasty weather. It was raining all day. Not nice at all but I still had to walk out Kiwi (our Vizsla-Lady) and so we (hubby and me) went for a walk in the woods. Thinking that under the trees the rain will be less… Well, it was not the case ☺
During our walk my hubby came with the idea to make his pasta for dinner. Of course he know that I cannot say “No” to his self-made pasta. It ‘s really tasty and I love it. So we decided to do pasta for dinner: Hubby would be responsible for the pasta and I would do the sauce or how the Italian called it: Salsa!
A great “Salsa” has to be simple and delicious! I once came up to do the Bolognese (everyone knows this salsa) in a healthy way by starting to use ground chicken instead of beef, and it came out to be really yummy. With this blog I want to share this recipe with you, to show you how to cook an amazing salsa that you can use not only for pasta but also for other great dishes, that I will share with you on the future 😉 So please stay tuned!
