MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2011

I had enough filling for 12 noodles. I also used an entire jar of sauce. I want to try freezing leftovers next time because I think these would be a good lunch option.

This is a fabulous and basic recipe. I bought good spaghetti sauce and 'doctored' it up with sauteed sweet Italian sausage, green pepper,onions & mushrooms. Served with a simple salad - WONDERFUL.
