In a soup pot bring water to a boil,
add in pasta and cook for 12 minutes.
While pasta is cooking place in a microwave
safe mixing bowl mix up really good

water, oregano, sugar, salt, garlic powder,
onion powder, and cayanne pepper.
Microwave on high power for six minutes,
or until the sauce is hot and heated through.
Drain the cooked pasta, place in a bowl and toss
