I have cooked this FOREVER. Everyone has a go-to recipe for nights when they get home late from work, kids have practice or a ton of homework, or whatever else throws a wrench in dinner plans. This is mine. I can throw it together in the blink of an eye. I could give my husband directions on how to make it over the phone, from memory. It doubles and triples well. It can be frozen. If I froze this, I would just make a big batch of the sauce and freeze it, and boil fresh noodles when the time came to eat this from your freezer stash. I like this with garlic toast and a nice salad.
