This recipe was a frequent favorite when I was in college, because it is made with ingredients most students have in their kitchens. I have made this with low fat ingredients, and it works very well. Since I have gotten older, I have added chicken and shrimp to the recipe; it is very adaptable. Easy, tastes wonderful, but not very easy on the waistline.

    My family rates this recipe as 5 stars. I do recommend doubling the sauce for a pound of pasta. (We like to dip our bread in it;-D)

    gotta say, I lived off this in college too! Even works with the cheese from a green can, if necessary (it's cheaper). Throw in some cooked frozen broccoli to make your mom happy, too!

    This was alright... a little plain. We added onions and ham, trying to spruce it up a little, but not to much avail.
