A good friend of mine shared this delicious recipe with me. When my family gets tired of the same old spaghetti, I like to serve this dish for a change! It provides a flavorful alternative to the Italian version. It's also a great dish when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.—Mary Detweiler, Middlefield, Ohio
