Quick Italian Spaghetti has been a standby for Ruth Peterson of Jenison, Michigan for some 40 years now. "I can make it in a jiffy, and there's no other spaghetti recipe my husband's even interested in trying!" Ruth says.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 24, 2013

I made the sauce and it was okay. Very basic and a bit unusual but I was missing my garlic. So then I went and changed it all together. I added fresh basil, fresh tarragon, garlic, and a little bit of red wine vinegar.

MY REVIEW

Very good and a bit different than the usual tomato sauces... I made this a while back and am looking forward to making it again tonight along with a recipe for linguine with spicy garlic oil that I found in another magazine...

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 12, 2010

I wanted to try a spaghetti sauce that was a bit different. I ran across this one that sounded good. Well, it was more than good; the black olives did the trick, I think. My husband says to make it again the next time we have spaghetti.
