Speedy Stovetop Spaghetti Recipe

Here’s a take on a favorite you’ll make over and over again. This dish tastes like it’s cooked all day, but it’s ready to eat in 40 minutes. The pasta cooks right in the skillet, and the 20-minute simmer gives me plenty of time to fix the rest of the meal. —Kristin Nanney, High Ridge, Missouri

"It's tasty but too much tomato liquid for me. I will use a smaller can of tomato sauce and more pasta next time I make it. Taste improves the 2nd time it is served... More zesty/"
