This was a simple meal to throw together and the flavor was wonderful! We added more tomato juice because we used more pasta and didn't want it to dry out. This is a very tasty weeknight dinner. And, the leftovers are just as good and full of flavor!

This made a wonderfully easy, tasty supper! A perfect weeknight meal for when I don't have a lot of energy to cook. I added a bit more water and tomato juice because I used 16 oz of pasta. The leftovers were great the next day for lunch. Thanks so much MizzNezz for a wonderful recipe that we'll have many more times!

This was easy and delicious! We really enjoyed it. I read the reviews prior to making and I too added a little more water and tomato juice as I used about 3/4 of a 16 oz. box of spaghetti. Next time I might use the full 16 oz. or add some mushrooms. We will definitely make this again. It was very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
