    It’s kids most favorite, and it’s sauce is what we had to consider prior serving it for it is the one who makes it palatable. But my mom use to tell me that it is the pasta that makes it perfect. I doubt it, just try to figure it out a spaghetti without it’s sauce? It’s probably the most unwanted food isn’t it? So, sauce is important.:)
