No one has to know how simple and quick this recipe is to make. I usually have everything on hand, so it is wonderful for those last-minute dinner guests or late night suppers.

Very good... I added 250gr of cooked ground veal and parmesan cheese. Also I added a touch of maple syrup in the final sauce because I think my tomato pasta sauce was a little bit acid. Maple syrup cut acidity very well. Thanks!
