There is nothing better than a delicious sauce. Whether that sauce is for pasta, for a salad, sandwich, or you want to dip your fries into! We love sauce. I love a good meat sauce to put over pasta or veggies. Usually, I use Italian sausage and red meat, but this week I wanted something with chicken.
