Have made this twice now. Wife and I loved it made our way though. We take recipes and try to make them healthier. I used multi-grain spaghetti all natural tomato sauce instead of ketchup and low fat pizza cheese. I threw in some diced chili peppers to spice it up too. We prefer spicier foods so we add a little hot sauce to ours as we eat it. Read More

This recipe tasted to us like the spaghetti from highschool. It was a little to sweet for our tastes maybe the "italian" version would taste better. Read More

Easy and delicious. I used the spaghetti sauce/mozzarella cheese version of the recipe and added onion powder garlic powder seasoned salt pepper and basil. Next time I'll make it with penne or ziti though - I made a mess trying to serve this thing. Read More

This was a nice easy recipe. I added the tomato sauce and mozzerella cheese. Also salt and pepper. Next time I make this I'll spice it up a little bit more. A good dish to make with ground turkey. Read More

I made the recipe like written for a big family get-together except I used sausage turkey to add a little spice and red peppers instead of green. The group loved it! It doesn't taste like italian spaghetti but that was ok we liked it being different. Some added tabasco to add some kick. Very easy to make ahead of time! Read More

Hello! I thought this recipe was simple and tasty. I put in 1 C. ketchup and 1 C. pasta sauce instead and yellow pepper which added a nice sweetness to it. I asked my boyfriend if I should make it again and he said "Definitely". Thank you. Read More

Decent recipe - nothing special! I did change it a little bit. Instead of using ketchup or tomato sauce i used a 10oz jar of spaghetti sauce. I also used mozzarella cheese on top instead of cheddar. It was good just average. Nothing to make you say "Wow".. Read More
