Just OK. Probably won't make this again.

easy , tasty. not the best but good quick meal

I normally don't like any kind of Italian sauce, but I added a lot of garlic powder to this, and I love it! My family asks me to make it at least 3 times a month.

This was an average tasting dish. However, it was extremely easy to make and paired well with pasta. I will make this again.
