Very easy way to make pasta in sauce... one less step! No need to drain, so one less dish to wash! I usually use a 26 oz jar of sauce with 1 lb of pasta, so I added an additional cup of water to the sauce (for a total of 3 cups), brought that to a boil, then added a whole box of pasta spirals.



This recipe was fabulous. Every noodle was covered with sauce so no need to worry about the sauce sliding off the noodle (which is what usually happens for me). I made ground beef with onions and garlic in a separate pan and poured it in the pan after the spaghetti was done. I will always cook my noodles in the sauce in the future.



Gave this 4 stars as it had to be tweeked, but maybe my family likes salt and seasoning too much. I always wanted to cook the noodles IN the sauce but thought adding water to the sauce would, well, water it down. I was wrong, I will never make jar spaghetti any other way. Instead of using water, I used chicken broth (base) and three cups of it too! Of course I added my own special fixings, like smoked sausage, peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc. I also used one can of canned chopped Italian-style tomatoes. Never tasted sooooo good!!
