Checca Sauce

This sauce is easy to make, super fresh and light, and can be used in a number of different ways. I like to serve it tossed with spaghettini or angel hair pasta.

    This was fantastic! Fresh, easy, and full of flavor. I mixed it with quinoa and used it to top baked chicken breast. Delicious!
