Finding a delicious dinner recipe for my family is always one of my goals! I love to cook and try new recipes and tweak my favorites to be our own sometimes! My entire family LOVES Italian Foods so we are always making pasta of some sort whether it be just plain spaghetti, lasagna, baked ziti or stuffed shells- we love them all the same.

These sauces are made with the kind of ingredients that you would find at your local farmers’ market like vine-ripened tomatoes, garlic, and basil. Since trying these sauces out in my home, I have fallen in love and cannot wait to try some more recipes using these as they have fresh ingredients!
