Grandma's Spaghetti

Today's recipe is one that has been handed down in my family for three generations. It's so ridiculously easy that I'm going to have to try to estimate the amounts for you. This one is great because it's easy to always have the ingredients on hand just in case something happens and you don't have more than 10 minutes to make dinner. Also in case I have failed to mention in previous recipes, I have a family of 5, so all my recipes are going to serve 5-6 people, so adjust accordingly if you have more or less people in your family.

Grandma's Spaghetti

Small shell pasta (about 3/4 of the bag)
15 oz can of tomato sauce
1/3 cup of margarine
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp salt

Cook the pasta until it is done and drain. Using the same pot, heat the tomato sauce, margarine and salt and pepper on medium heat until warm. Return pasta to the pan. Stir to coat the pasta in the sauce. Serve in bowls.

This is really good with buttered bread on the side.
