Homemade Spaghetti O's?! Heck Yeah!

I found the recipe here:

I made them this morning (I was up early. Thanks, Nate.) with ingredients I had on hand. Here is my adapted version. I scaled it to size and added more grownup flavor. My kids probably wouldn't touch it anyway, (well, maybe Nathan would) so I figured I'd make it to my liking. It tastes like Pizza-Pasta. Yum.

Makes 4 generous servings.

1 29 oz can of tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 cup small pasta (I used organic vegetable alphabet noodles.)
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese (I used a pizza blend.)
1 tbsp butter (I used salted.)
Edited to add!: 1 tsp of sugar (to cut the acidity of the tomatoes.)
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix the tomato sauce, water, garlic, basil, and oregano in a 3 quart sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Stir in the pasta and cook according to directions on the package, stirring frequently. (Mine took 11 minutes and Hubby stirred the whole time. :)) Remove from heat and stir in milk, cheese, butter, and sugar. Salt and pepper to taste.

I'd add a picture, but I ate it already.
