Expert Tips

Not serving eight for dinner tonight? Cook only as much spaghetti as you need, and serve it with a proportionate amount of sauce. Refrigerate or freeze the remaining sauce for another time.

Serve with Witches' Brooms and Sauce, substituting the Magic Potion Meat Sauce for the marinara sauce.
