This is very simple and delicious dish for everyday cooking. It got its pasta”Navy style” name from when they served this dish to seamen at marines. It does have a lot of variations, so you may add or omit anything that you like. I use a basic recipe, but if you like you can add more spices like cumin, cayenne or chili.Also you can add bell peppers,herbs and omit tomato sauce.
