"This is a family favorite! My picky 7 year old loves it, my 15 month old does too, & my husband wants me to make it every week. The honey gives it a nice sweet flavor. I double the sauce & make angel hair pasta and mixed it all together, DELICIOUS!!! Super quick to make too."

"This tasted good and went together quickly. I did double the sauce and next time, I will probably add some red pepper flakes because I would like it to have a bit of a kick."
