“This has been a favourite meal of mine for years. Easy and tasty, the aroma alone is great! I use a Dolmio bolognese sauce (sold in the UK) which is excellent but your favorite spaghetti sauce will do just as well. I'm not a big garlic fan so I don't tend to use a lot of it in this recipe but for those who are, you might want to add a whole garlic clove instead of half. Mushrooms go great too.”
