|April's Spaghetti: simple, delicious comfort food.|
The beauty of this recipe is that it is so simple and uses ingredients most people have on hand: spaghetti noodles, plain canned tomato sauce, butter, and garlic salt (and Parmesan cheese, if desired). That's it. A quick, delicious meal, that I can only serve when my husband won't be eating with us (he's not much of a pasta fan).
This recipe is not exact. Add more or less butter, as you like. After you make it once, you sort of see how it goes and how much gets eaten. To me, it's one of those meals you'll probably just make for you and your family, so you don't have to get it perfect. It's hard to mess up and tastes good no matter what.
