This has always been a favorite dish of our Sisters who work in a hospital. When we get back to the convent, it's a quick and easy recipe we've used for years. Served with Italian bread and a tossed salad, it makes an excellent meal.

I really like this recipe. It's quick and I really like the chili powder taste. I think it could use a little more chili powder (which I'll use next time). It might also use 1 1/2 tsp of sugar. The sauce has a strong tart tomato flavor. Other than that, it was great. My four year old loved it! Read More

I found this to be not much different from spaghetti w/meat sauce. I don't think I'll ever make again. Read More

This was a big hit here. For something that cooked up in one pan, used very few ingredients, and was so economical, this was really WOW! I had a larger can of juice so I used all the juice and then added only a little water instead. This would be great for camping too and so much better than the dry package mixes. Nice tomatoey flavor, lots of sauce. Easy and fairly quick too. Thanks for the post! Read More
