This is what my step dad requested for his birthday party. It was made for a large crowd but I am sure you can cut it back to suit your desired amount! I used 4 pounds of pasta and there wasnt a spoonful left. It really was delicious. Since I was pressed for time and also had to make salad, garlic bread, a cake and brownies I cut corners and used severeal varieties of jarred hunts sauces to make the base for the sauce. It saved me alot of time and wow what flavor!!
