For me this dish tells it all. Mom, Home and Family. When you grow up in an Italian household there is never a Sunday without pasta and the family together. It just wouldn't be right. Angel Hair Pasta is one of the finest gifts to hand down from generation to generation. When the sauce is Home Made, There’s just nothing like it. That stuff you get in a jar or even in restaurants is loaded with salt. They generally start out at well over 850 mg of sodium and that is on the extreme low side. Try this one on for size, 258 mg’s of sodium, And a thousand percent Great Taste.
