My mom and I decided to try this recipe after finding it on the back of a Creamette box of spaghetti.  We skipped the mushrooms (I’m not a fan) and the peas (didn’t have any in the house), and added zucchini and orange peppers.  The zucchini made it, I’m really glad we added that.  Overall, an easy, delicious spaghetti recipe!
