This sauce is very simple and easy to do but very tasty and it can be made while you're cooking pasta. It can be used for seasoning pasta, pasta rings, "ravioli" of all kind, "tortellini", "gnocchi".
It can also be used for warming up boiled meat or seasoning boiled vegetables (beans, string beans, Swiss chard...).
