This was really good! I added 3/4 jar of marinara sauce, and also more mushrooms. I chopped the mushrooms very finely in the food processor, since my kids won't eat them otherwise. It had kind of a ground beef effect. I also used chicken broth instead of the water. I also added some more grated parmesan on the top. Very tasty, and even my picky 4 year old liked it!

I made this today and it was very good and very filling. I added and changed some. I added 1 pkg frozen spinach, some mozzarella cheese, and a can of salmon. Also used whole wheat elbows.Didn't have celery so I added some red and yellow peppers along w/the onion. Also wanted more spagetti flavor so I left out the marjoram and used oregano and basil. This made a lot, but it will all be gone soon. Thanks for the low fat keeper.
