Veggie Spaghetti

Both kids and adults like this one. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry already...and if you don't have cream, use 2 cups of milk. A great dish to freeze and serve at a later time. If you like a spicier tomato sauce, feel free to add your own Italian spices: garlic, basil, oregano, green pepper, etc ...

Directions

  1. In a large skillet melt 1/2 cup margarine over medium heat. Stir in onion, chopped tomatoes, and salt; simmer for 1/2 hour.
