Spaghetti and Cannellini Marinara Alla Momma

Spaghetti and Cannellini Marinara Alla Momma was whipped up one night in the RV kitchen. We were hunkered down for a few days in Pine Grove, PA; it was rainy; we didn't feel like going out to get groceries.  Viola!

I was looking to add some protein to our regular spaghetti dish, so I chose a can of cannellini beans.  Then I knew I needed to zing it up, we like zingy food.  I saw the half empty jar of banana peppers in the fridge, and thought:  these look like calamari rings  - we've eaten our share of Calamari Alla Momma these past few months)......I know!! (still talking to myself) - I'll Alla Momma the sauce!!

2) Lose the obnoxious yellow bowl for future pics  
3) This is a way to sneak in a meatfree meal to my meat & potatoes man
