This recipe is perfect for me, quick, easy, and tasty. I can put it together in no time and my family loves it!! I even made some for a friend and her family loves it as well. This is certainly a keeper.

Good and easy. Who doesn't like lots of gooey cheese? Pick your favorite spaghetti sauce and it's perfect and quick.
