A Must-Try Recipe

This recipe is a must-try for two reasons: Firstly, it comes together really quickly—so if you're short on time, this is a recipe for you. Secondly, it's so tasty that it's always a crowd-pleaser. The sauce has the right balance of sweet and salty, and this recipe makes just the right amount to coat all the veggies and spaghetti.

I make this dish often because I can vary the vegetables and it always tastes delicious. Sometimes I'll add in bell peppers, snap peas, or whatever I have on hand.
