If I’m being totally honest here, I got the idea to add butter to my sauce from watching the Showtime show Episodes with Matt LeBlanc. His character makes his red sauce with butter, and I thought that probably tastes amazing and since grass-fed butter is great for your health, I gave it a try. This recipe is extremely easy to make and requires virtually no skill. Most of my recipes are easy like that because I am not a natural-born cook myself and I want to cater my recipes to other people who aren’t natural-born cooks either but want to maintain optimal health. This would be even better with some grated cheese on top.
