Years ago my grandma used to make this sauce to put on spaghetti or linguine on Christmas Eve. Always was a family favorite but the difference was the sauce. She used her own and you can make your own homemade too or use a different pasta sauce. I also make my own sometimes but for this recipe I used the sauce I did because I am on Weight Watchers diet and the sauce is tasty and 0 points for me on my plan.
