“When I make pasta, I replace the spaghetti sauce with mild salsa. I made cheese manicotti covered with salsa for a friend’s housewarming party and received compliments,” writes Margharita Fransis of Utica, Michigan.
Garlic and basil flavor the tomato sauce that coats this tender Chicken Marinara. A friend gave me this skillet recipe several years ago. It's easy to make using pre-sliced mushrooms, commercial pasta sauce and quick-cooking pasta. —Kathleen Williams, St Albans, West Virginia
Our three kids just love the fun wagon wheel shapes in this easy recipe. The mildly seasoned sauce is something that even the pickiest eaters enjoy. For variety, try it with Italian sausage instead of ground beef. —Janine Freeman, Blaine, Washington
