Since I quit eating meat about 6 months ago,I make this dish often.Even my husband who is a big meat eater loves this spaghetti.
You can skip the step to sauté the spaghetti in the garlic flavored olive oil,I do it for flavor as pasta is bland when you don't cook the pasta in the sauce.Or you can cook the pasta in the sauce a few minutes,then top with Parmesan.
