Spaghetti and tomato sauce just got a flavorful makeover--and it’s got heads turning. This gussied-up classic is all about bright and exciting flavors: briny bites of green olive, thinly sliced garlic, and a touch of chopped fresh chili add serious oomph to marinara. This super savory melange coats twirly, al dente spaghetti for an extra-hearty and satisfying experience. On the side, there’s a heap of lemony arugula salad (because we’re all about balance).
