This is an amazing sauce that can be made in large batches and used in several different recipes, including my Chicken and Broccoli pasta. Quick to make in a pinch or to have on hand, either way this is a recipe you’ll be making often.

If you omit the water from the pasta it is a rich and creamy dip for veggies or pizzetti, which are small fried pieces of pizza dough. Delicious!!!!
