Sometimes you find the most comforting foods in the most unlikely places. I was creating this dish to be a nice romantic dinner and it turned out to be the most amazing comfort food.
It was so good that we devoured it 3 times before I got a picture. Chad even loved this. He is not a devout Italian food lover like myself, but this was so delicious, he couldn't get enough. It only takes 30 minutes to prepare, so I was more than excited to make it again. He knows that this is so easy and it has ingredients that we always have on hand, so needless to say, this is on our menu often!
