  2. Stir in water, tomato sauce, and spices. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add spaghetti, cover pan, and simmer 10-15 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.

Great recipe to add shredded carrots, spinach, bell peppers or whatever veggie I have in the frig.  Love this recipe, a big hit with children and adults!


So tasty -- the oregano and rosemary make this very savory.  Teenage chefs love how easy this is to make!

This is yummy and with just one pot clean up is easy!
