    Great seasonings for the sauce. Really easy and really good.

    This was very good. I make my own sauce so I used that. The ricotta gives the dish a nice taste. I also sprinkled parmaesan on the top of the mozzarella before I baked it. I also added a little fresh basil since I had some. Thanks for sharing this one. It is so nice and easy to make. :)

    This was very tasty. I also added a layer of fresh mozzarella on the top since I love melted mozzarella with spaghetti sauce. One of my family members suggested putting chicken in it next time.

    This is a true crowd pleasure recipe. Easy to follow and the taste is the reward.


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
