One-Dish Microwave Spaghetti

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by littleturtle

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

ADJUST time and amount of pasta and YUM! After other reviews, used 1/2 # of thin spaghetti. Microwaved 10 minutes, covered, stirred, vented one side and cooked 10 minutes more. Allowed to sit for 5 minutes. GREAT!
