Story behind the dish: Did you ever have family, friends or a significant other who cooked a dish with a delicious aroma you smelled before you even walked into the house? If you closed your eyes and inhaled, you could smell the base ingredients and picture at least one or two in your mind? I smelled sautéed garlic browning in olive oil and simmering san marzano tomatoes as I walked up the stairs to our apartment. A smile spread across my face and my stomach chimed in with an approving growl. Less than an hour later, we sat down as a duo, toasted the day with a glass of wine and twirled that first satisfying bite of pasta around each of our forks.
