Spaghetti and Herring ?  Yes, it is not the most common pairing you would think of but it it great. It is full of some veggie favorites and the herring just gives it that extra flavour! 

The taste and the perfumes from this recipe just brings me back to Haiti, in the morning, after being awaken by the morning sun and my mom preparing this for us.
