You can also add veggies or meats to this base mixture, but I did not account for the calories. And I prefer this without any additional flavors to change the taste.

    This recipe is great.. I added a can of italian style tomatos and omitted the onion... Hubby won't eat whole wheat pasta and that is what I used... I just didn't tell him. He never knew. - 8/6/10
