    The nutritional information on this recipe seems to be way off. It says two jars of pasta sauce but when you click recipe makeover you find they used Hunt's Spaghetti Sauce (Garlic&Herb)(1/2c), 6 serving (remove) I don't have any pasta jar to look at but I think they are bigger than that. - 7/5/20
