Would be great w/ more sauce and maybe less cinnamon or allspice flavor.

We liked this a lot. Allspice adds a unique flavor.

We didn't like this at all...it was for sure the allspice and cinnamon. Liem asked why it had apple pie seasoning in it. We ended up making Grilled Cheese instead. I'd be willing to try it w/o the allspice and cinnamon...maybe replace it with a more traditional italian spices, like basil and oregano?

Ok, reduced the allspice by half. Used a 4lb jar of marinara sauce. I always cook far too much pasta. Really only need 1.5 pkgs - hard to tell if we can get away with just 1 since I cooked 4! Will know next time we cook it. Glad you like it better now Tessa!
