Skillet Spaghetti

>> Thursday, August 14, 2008

This is another of my mom's recipes. She makes it all the time and it's so good. Isn't it funny how everything tastes better when your mom makes it :P This recipe is very easy and very versatile. It is also great for sneaking in extra veggies when certain people *ahem, my husband* don't like them. I've put in carrots, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, etc. The possibilities are endless as long as you disguise it well :)
