      I made this recipe using "simple tomato sauce" from a cooking channel chef. It was excellent. My husband said to make it again. The only change I made was to add capers and to use black olives. Since husband likes black olives only.

      This was spaghetti as I love to eat it - saucy, but not overly so, intensely-flavoured, easy to make. A hit at my home and already transferred to my keeper file. Thanks Becky!
