“This is really a basic recipe for pasta in a sauce without draining your pasta and using more then one pot. I really enjoy the way the pasta has flavor all the way through not just poured on. Since I'm the mama of the house I do most of the cleaning so I avoid extra dishes at all cost! This can be vegetarian if you omit the meat. Really you can sub most of the ingredients except for the pasta , sauce, and water. I would say its similar to a hamburger helper meal in flavor. Well enjoy”
