Sunday with Sugo, Seafood, Fresh Tagliatelle Pasta

In my quest to live the simple, but delicious life..I love to stay home and savor all the flavors in my kitchen..when it is possible.. and take a mini day ‘staycation’ stress, no bags to pack or planes to catch or dinner reservations to make…For me a staycation treat is  to spend a day  enjoying simple pleasures  I don’t always have the time for…cooking a special dish for a family’s meal was fresh tagliatelle pasta with seafood meatballs. I had 2 cans of Mutti San Marzano tomatoes that I added to the recipe to make it a special one..
