I created this recipe on the fly because I didn't have my usual ingredients for spaghetti. I was so happy with how it tasted that I decided to make this my first recipe submission. This makes a very light sauce. If you prefer a heartier sauce, add 1/2 can of tomato paste or even use crushed tomatoes instead of whole, but I encourage you to try it as written; it's so yummy! Serve over al-dente spaghetti noodles. I hope you enjoy!

I made this exactly by the recipe. In my opinion the spices need to be different. Something in addition to the basil. Perhaps oregano and Italian seasoning maybe? It also needs more than one clove of garlic. Read More

Basic spaghetti - nothing too spicy. Good way to use some ground chicken. Modifications I made were as follows: used 1t each of basil and Italian seasoning and added a splash of red wine (cab). Also added fresh white mushrooms. Read More
