Abbondonza!

Spaghetti sauce is delicious.
It's spicy, full of zest. What do you have going on in there? Tomatoes, some bell peppers, onions, maybe a few mushrooms. You may or may not have sausage and/or meatballs. There's no telling. There are a million ways to make spaghetti sauce and regardless of what it's made of and what goes into preparing it, it almost always turns out rich, hearty and exciting.
But that's not enough for some people.
They don't appreciate how good spaghetti sauce is by itself. "That's not a meal", they say, noses upturned. "It's incomplete", they say. So they insist on pairing the sauce up with something else, another component. Often it's something insipid, , starchy, limp and colorless that just lies there and soaks up all the good stuff spaghetti sauce brings to the relationship. Then and only then will those people recognize how delicious the sauce is.
Happy Valentines Day.
