When things get busy it always nice to find a way to cut corners a little bit. This One Pan Skillet Spaghetti Recipe allows you to cook the spaghetti in the sauce. This recipe was a nice surprise because the dish tasted a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Actually my wife liked it every bit as well as the spaghetti we normally prepare, stating “maybe it’s was even better”.
This would be a great recipe to put in your recipe box with the upcoming school year approaching for after school dinner. It’s simple to prepare, doesn’t take much time, and I’m sure your kids would love it.
Give this One Pan Skillet Spaghetti Recipe a try; it’s really good. Enjoy.
