Pasta Marinara

Pasta marinara…”If I will call this as a movie, it would be a TITANIC”… This was the all time favorite pasta in most Cafe I have worked with. And because it was very popular, I made a variety of marinara, these are, creamy marinara, pesto marinara, seafood trio pasta plus they can even choose their own noodles such as penne, angel hair, spaghetti, fettuccine and etc…
