Sassy Fiesta Spaghetti

This is a recipe that I adapted from Betty Crocker; it's spaghetti with a little Mexican twist.

The original recipe called for sugar, but I omitted this, because it didn't appeal to me.

The original recipe also called for organic crushed tomatoes with basil; but I used regular crushed tomatoes and added 1/2 teaspoon of basil.
