One-Pot Spaghetti

Make spaghetti and mess up only one pot? I’m in! Wow, was this spaghetti GOOD!!!! My 7 year old said it was the better dinner EVER, and my husband and I both exclaimed at least twice how GOOD this was! The sauce was so flavorful! This was very very easy, and oh so good. This one’s a keeper!
