Chicken Bolognese Sauce

This dish was created out of leftovers. And laziness. It was a Saturday and I put off going to the store all day, so when it came time for dinner, I found myself in a pickle. We’ve been trying to save money by not going out, so I rummaged through the fridge and pulled out … Continue reading
