1/1 Photo of Saucepan Spaghetti
So simple! This one-pot meal was actually created by my big brother. Chili powder or Cajun spice blend may be substituted for the oregano. I usually add prepared spaghetti sauce in place of the tomato sauce for more flavor. Any pasta may be used in place of spaghetti. The Cheddar cheese adds a really rich texture and flavor to the final dish.
