MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 29, 2014

I have made this on several occasions and it just keeps getting better. The only thing I add extra is some crushed chili peppers which we like in most dishes. Will definitely make many more times. Oh, I also use Smartfields spaghetti as it is low carb; no cholesterol; low everything else and tastes great!!
