Best Rustic Tomato Pasta Sauce

A few weeks ago, I made my delicious giant meatballs. I know, I know...Italians in Italy don't eat spaghetti with meatballs. Well, it's really too bad, because it's freakin' delicious! :0

This sauce is perfect over pasta, chicken, fish or even as a pizza sauce. Make a lasagne or eggplant parmesan with this and I guarantee you will get a wedding proposals! Ok, so maybe not, but it really is delicious. Must be the Portuguese accent:) Rich, complex and bursting with flavour.

Enjoy XOXO
