Oh Mama Mia...if you love your spag bog, then this is just the recipe for you. From the kitchen of our lovely Team Tenina member Gina, you will find this just the ticket for the family spaghetti night. It is really delicious, and completely easy and satisfying. Cue the pasta...and the garlic bread, and the garlicky roast potatoes, and the opera....dinner is served. Buon Appetito.
