My family loved this dish! It was very quick and easy to make. The pasta really took on the flavor of the sauce since it was cooked in the spaghetti sauce instead of just water. I'll be addin...

Really simple and very tasty

Great fast and easy meal.

So very easy. I used Rao's marinara sauce and it was a major hit here. This will become a family staple.

This recipe is fantastic! So easy and delicious, even for a beginner like me!
