The sauce is wounderful and my son loved it. But one draw back the suace was not enough for one packet of spagetti. I would change to recipe to have double the liquid portion of the recipe. - 15 Sep 2008

We adjusted the quantities a bit as it was for 2, not 6. It was delicious and we will make it again - 07 Mar 2011
