This sauce is the best…it has the perfect balance of sweet, heat and savory. This recipe is kid approved I received two thumbs up from each 🙂 . Every time I make this sauce it’s a hit, love the creaminess. This sauce is excellent with the pasta and peas tossed in. I also incorporated a protein (tofu), this is a complete meal. The pasta I used was Rombi, a short ribbon-type pasta hangs on well to the sauce (picture a chopped up lasagna). Enjoy!
