In honor of the Clone (my youngest daughter) whose birthday is tomorrow and who loves anything with pasta, this is for you, baby! We actually had this last week, as we have to have something akin to spaghetti at least once a week for the clone, but I just haven’t had time to post much…

Pasta with Meat Sauce

Pasta with Meat Sauce

I cooked a big pot of spaghetti sauce last Sunday. It’s the clone’s (my youngest daughter) favorite, so even though the rest of us aren’t that crazy about spaghetti, we have to have it at least every other week so the clone is happy.
