Reviews for Skillet Pasta
"Very good, not as fast as using jarred sauce, but it tastes ten times better. I doubled the recipe and added half a bay leaf and a can of drained diced tomatoes. The clear advantage here is using one pot to make the dish, a definite time saver. I like this and may abandoned jarred sauce altogether."
"Very good recipe. Will make again. Didnt add the mushrooms"
"My husband and grandkids loved it. I had to email to the other Grandma. Will definitely make again."
"This is a very good recipe! I would recommend adding a bit more beef broth so it is not so thick - maybe 1 1/2 cups. Also, you may need to stir it while it's simmering occasionally!"
