NotesI went down to Greenville with the boyfriend a few weeks ago to visit a really good friend of mine from high school. She was working and allowed me to have free reign of her apartment's kitchen until she got home, which was a huge mistake. Pretending to be the culinary genius I really wish that I was, I decided that instead of some icky jar pasta sauce, I would make my own. It turned out really well, and I think I`ll make it again some day.
