    C.Lo Carb Queen's Note:

    This recipe was given to me from my mom, who got if from her mom, who likely got it from her mom. It was originally told to me like, "a little of this, a little of that", so it was a challenge to create actual measurements to sharet it. I must admit, I have changed it up a bit, but in ways that make it more fresh and flavorful. I make it and use it for pasta, pizza from scratch, dipping sauce for bread sticks, and then freeze some for later. It's a great money saver that way. I also use fresh herbs if I have them, instead of dried but remember the measurements are smaller for fresh. Add ground meat or meatballs for pasta dishes.
