For this fabulous, fuss-free dish, Elaine Spevak of Jacksonville, Florida turns to store-bought spaghetti sauce, then dresses it up with crisp veggies, olives, fresh parsley and cheese. The result? A healthy entree that’s “quick to prepare and sure to please,” she reports. “This is my very favorite pasta dish.”

"We love this recipe. I do not use the olives. I add some drained canned mushrooms and it was great. Yummy!"

"If you are on a low salt diet, this is not the recipe for you. This recipe has more salt than is necessary for anyone."
