This recipe was on the back of a pkg. of spaghetti that I'd gotten from Sam's Club. It's great for a light dinner, or when you want to get supper on the table personally prefer to use fresh herbs whenever possible. I just feel it's worth the extra pennies to get the fresh flavor. When using wine in your recipes, use wine that you yourself would drink. Times do not include time for cooking spaghetti.I also tear a few leaves of basil and add to the sauce right at the very end of the cooking time.
