Recipe by Ms B.

I adopted this recipe and have not yet tried it. The original chef's comments are as follows: "One of the first recipes I learned how to make when I got married! From a Sunset collection."

This was so good. It's also a really nice change of pace from regular spaghetti and sauce. I couldn't find the Italian style tomatoes, so I just used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning. Thanks for a great recipe.
