I cannot believe how just adding a few ingredients can completely change the flavor of ordinary spaghetti! This is very good if you want an inexpensive meal, just a little out of the ordinary.

Really simple to make and tasty. I used italian hot sausage instead of the ground beef and fresh tomato sauce. I really enjoyed the flavor of this sauce. Made for football Pool Week 11 win.
