If you’re looking for Italian recipes, I’m your girl. I think my brain is wired that way honestly! I do admittedly lean more towards the Northern fare with it’s heavy sauced pastas, meats and cheeses instead of the Mediterranean side of food (but I am getting more into that as I cook more fish).
So since we’re talking squash bake in this week’s recipe, I would be remiss to share my simple pasta sauce recipe and as I’m hoping you’re gathering by now, I do LOVE a simple recipe. And did I mention each serving is ZERO WW SmartPoints? Yeah… Go ahead and enjoy this one on repeat!
