I decided to make a sauce from scratch, so I stewed three tomatoes, added a little tomato paste and some dried herbs. My go-to's are oregano, parsley, chili powder and crushed red pepper. And salt and pepper, of course.
I also squirted a little lemon juice in there, and then added about 1/4c of the cheese. I might've added a little more after that; I can't be sure.
Once the spaghetti was cooked to almost al dente, I remembered to finish cooking it in the sauce, plated it with tongs (giving it a fancy little chef-like twirl), and topping it off with a little more cheese.
The wine is a 2009 Gabbiano Chianti. I'm sorry to say that I'm not very discerning when it comes to wine, but I do enjoy this.
And no Italian dinner of any kind would be complete without my new favorite Italian dessert: Grown-Up Sundae.

I haven't heard from y'all in a few posts. I'm afraid the "Reactions" are making you lazy! What did you have for dinner? Comments!
