Hands down!! This recipe is by far the best one pan spaghetti I have ever tried. It was easy, I cooked it with chicken thighs instead and It came out incredibly good. I have also made it with ground turkey it was good but not as good as the chicken! You have to try it.

The sauce was a little blah...participants suggested adding more spices to make the flavor better.
