You may have thought that a good pasta dish had to contain rare varieties of Italian cheese with herbs that only grow around the Mediterranean.  Mom proves you wrong, with a simple way of making a good pasta sauce. It takes a few spices and just a little time and love. I grew up with it being the best pasta I have ever had. She shared this recipe with me, and now I will share it with you.
