I made this to go with another recipe, I also made for the swap I am in this month I served this with Cheese Filled Jumbo Shells except I could not get the shells, so I made it in cannelloni instead. I topped it with this sauce and sprinkled Parmesan cheese over the top and baked for about 10 Min’s in the oven and it was excellent. I will post the recipe for the stuffed shells too, this was and excellent sauce to go with it but would be just as good served by itself with spaghetti and topped with lots of Parmesan cheese. I served it along with a green salad and some garlic bread and it got rave reviews from all. To read more reviews or to see other photos of this recipe please click here.
