Debi... Next time you make spaghetti.. you should try this.. and add some garlic bread.. you will have a great meal.

Sara.. You are welcome.. Let me know what you think.  I know I keep saying this with all my recipes, I just like to hear if others like them as much as I do.  This is extremely easy to make, and tastes so much better than the jarred or canned.

Valerie, we have pasta about once per week.  We try different sauces, so maybe my wife will give this one a try  :)

Cindy.. You have to try this recipe.. it is GREAT.  If you husband likes vegetables (most don't) you can dice some up, and add it... I did this, and my son had two servings.
