    Quick and easy comfort food. Complete meal on it's own, but garlic bread and a tossed salad make great additions.

      Was good. Not fantastic, but fast and I LOVE that. I hate to cook pasta, so anytime I can get away without having to boil the water & the whole 9 yards, I am happy. It was a little watery even afte microwaving for almost 20 minutes. It took that long for the spaghetti to soften up. Will use agian if in a time pinch.
