It was just a touch on the bland side, but we really liked it. Used leftover steamed broccoli and macaroni. Next time I think I'll add a little basil and oregano.

This is so flavorful and so easy to prepare! I made as directed using some black forest deli ham which was perfect. The sauce was not too heavy, but just right for the spaghettini. Thanks so much, Evelyn!
