Garlic Spaghetti II

Recipe by  

"This is a light and garlicky spaghetti sauce. This is delicious and easy to prepare! A variation on the original garlic spaghetti. I like to serve it with a glass of red wine. My husband's favorite! Serve with a heated sourdough baguette and dip in 6 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar if desired."

I loved it! Use more garlic and oregano than recommended.

This was good but not much different from tossing spaghetti with just heated pasta sauce, especially garlic-flavored sauce.

Great recipe. Easy, fast to make, tasty and cheap. Added a chilly in the sauce to spice it up and some cheese on top when served.

Absolutely Delicious!!! I changed the recipe a llittle. I added kalmata olives and instead of 2 cans of tomato sauce, I used 1 can sauce and 1 can diced tomatoes.

In these tough economic times, I find myself living on staple items like most people. Pasta is something I always have on hand, so I whipped this up for dinner tonight. I scaled the recipe down to four servings (some for dinner tonight, the rest for lunch leftovers tomorrow), left out the salt, and added a bit more garlic since I'm a huge fan of the stuff. Oh, and I used linguine since I didn't have regular spaghetti noodles on hand. This certainly filled me up, and tasted great. Thanks Amanda!

I really liked the flavor, I used small shell pasta instead of spaghetti, and added a little hot sauce and grated cheese. It was really pretty good.

Quick easy spaghetti sauce. Nothing too fancy. I added a little sugar.
