Flipping through the choices on this menu, enjoying our beautiful photographs and entertaining meal descriptions, you come across this meal and you think, aha! Now I've got you, Home Chef chefs; this is just spaghetti and sauce. I know this. Well, we hate to contradict you, dear customer, but no, you don't. This sauce is pretty much a no-cook wonder, with just a few easy minutes of stirring. Delicious, juicy tomatoes with a smattering of herbs and the salty delight of Parmesan give the old spaghetti standby something new to sing about. And if that's not original enough for you, mashed burrata tops this dinner with creamy aplomb. Maybe you haven't called us out on this one, but you've garnered something better out of the deal: the best dinner of your week.
