Jen’s thoughts and Recommendations
This can be a great after work dinner if you have some already prepared spaghetti sauce, or simply a can of Prego already made in the cupboard.  I also love to use leftover noodles and spaghetti sauce so all I have to do is pop it in the oven and BAM dinner is done; all while enjoy a glass of red wine and Cosmo.

Healthier version of this recipe
Leave out the cheese on this recipe replace white spaghetti noodles with a box of wheat noodles.  Since I am on the healthier bandwagon these days, I simply omit the cheese on my plate and add cheese to my boyfriend’s plate so that I can save on unneeded calories.
