We don't eat pasta, but I do make my own sauces for other things.

Yes!! Spaghetti is probably my fave. Alfredo is a close second.

Spaghetti or ziti. I like to make my own sauces when I can. I recently made a carbonera sauce. First time for me and my kids loved it! But you know what they say about bacon, lol.

We love pasta around here, but have never made our own sauces.

Alfredo is my favorite.  I love red sauces too, but I'm the only one in my house that does so I'm usually the only one to eat them. 

Sometimes I make my own sauces, other times i use jarred or canned, it just depends on how much time I have to make dinner.

 Oh my, I haven't even thought of pasta in a crock pot. I will have to give that a try. Too bad my husband doesn't eat spaghetti!!

 We use a tomato based sauce most often.  I love making my own from scratch with fresh tomatoes and herbs in the crockpot.

My son is a spaghetti junkie, so that's the pasta we eat the most. I do make my own sauces. I really want to try the artichoke pasta recipe!

I cook spaghetti most often for spaghetti with meatballs, chicken alfredo, or other meals. I don't make my own sauces, though. I just doctor up the jarred with added spices or things like a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.
