Very easy and tasted very good. Next time I will add some garlic and chopped green bell pepper because we like that, but otherwise no changes needed.

Very quick! Delish! I added some mixed frozen veggies and a little garlic b/c I didn't have Italian seasoning on hand. Will make again soon! Great way to hide veggies.

Delicious and very easy to prepare and it made a huge quantity, so we had quite a few serves to put in the freezer. :) I added some rosemary and sage to the Italian herbs and 4 cloves of minced garlic (standard additions for me). I used Aldi's Italian tomatoes (so flavoursome and so little juice so that allowed me to sneak in 1/2 cup of merlot), and I used some of MarraMamba's The Simplest Tomato Sauce Ever (Marcella Hazan) for the spaghetti sauce. I opted for unsalted butter but cut it back to more like 1/4 cup. We thoroughly enjoyed this with warm crusty rolls. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Linda. Made for Gimme 5.
