Another web find -- looks yummy!! My husband is not a huge fan of marinara, so I am always on the lookout for something a little different! This looks easy enough to adapt to various types of pasta as well...

Although this was delicious, I thought it could use something, maybe a few grates of fresh nutmeg? Yummy though :)
