This was very good! The only change that I did make was in using gluten-free, quinoa spaghetti. The only problem I had was that I ate and ate and ate, way over my carb allotment and had to walk 4 miles to work it off. This recipe stands well, as is and is even better for the next meal. Next time, I might add garlic and double the parmesan cheese. Ah, gluttony!
