I agree. I mean, pasta got started as the cheap food for poor people. (During the Depression, Mayor LaGuardia had his mother’s recipe for Pasta e Fagioli published as a way to cook a cheap, nutritious meal.) I understand the sauces take work, but honestly, for most of what they serve, they could give half the price to a soup kitchen and still be making a profit.
And that sauce up there looks mighty watery to me.
