My family loves marinara. I think I have a love-hate relationship with tomatoes.. Pesto is my answer to all the tomatoes that I get subjected to.. I love pistachios and zucchini. This is a comfort food I can dig into anytime ... too bad if my waist line groans.. Oh, I have sneaked in some tomatoes into this one .. just for color.He is not invited to be part of the official recipe 😊 There is no garlic in the recipe too, as sometimes I restrict the use of garlic in my cooking. Feel free to add in some chopped garlic, if you love your pastas garlicky..
