Recipe by LoveMy2Angels

This is yet another recipe that my husband enjoys. You can add vegetables if you'd like (peas, portabella mushrooms, etc.). Also, the sauce may need doubling so be sure you have extra on hand just in case it's not to your liking. We always double our sauce!

This is super easy to prepare and so delicious! I used whole wheat spaghettini noodles and threw in some sliced fresh mushrooms and broccoli florets while frying the onion and garlic. The sauce to noodle ratio was right on! My whole family enjoyed this for dinner, thanks for posting :)
