This was a quick and easy meal that the whole family enjoyed. We actually liked it better than my usual spaghetti recipe because the broken noodles were much easier to eat. I used a can of crushed tomatoes because my oldest son won't eat spaghetti sauce if he can see pieces of tomato. I added a packet of spaghetti seasoning fresh basil (had it on hand) and garlic. This isn't a gourmet recipe of course but pretty darn good! Read More

This recipe tastes good but the spaghetti needed more water before it became tender. I also added fresh minced garlic and that gave it more flavor. Read More

This was a fairly easy recipe and it was good but not great. If you are looking to make a quick meal for your family this is a great choice but I wouldn't recomend it for guests or a dinner party. Read More

Typical spaghetti recipe. I had to subtract 2 stars b/c the method of cooking the spaghetti in the sauce did not work well for me (noodles weren't tender and sauce was dry). I prefer to cook noodles separately then add them to the sauce. Read More

overall this was a solid dinners dish. I made sure to add a lot more water and even added a little tomato sauce we had left over I also added garlic in the beginning and then added garlic power when it was on my plate. My boyfriend really liked it and it is now going into our rotation of hearty dinner recipes. Read More

Gee sorry - I just didn't care for this. The spaghetti soaked up ALL the moisture so by the time it was cooked the meal tasted very dry. I added garlic as did many of the others but I still thought it had a bland taste. Read More

This gets 4 stars more for ease and having the ingredients around than for taste. I added crushed fresh garlic garlic powder extra italian seasoning and crushed red pepper in addition to using whole peeled tomatoes with basil and still found it to be a little under seasoned so I added additional garlic powder at the table. I ended up needing almost 3 cups of water to keep the sauce from being to thick and dry. I will probably make it again because of the ease but the recipe needs modifications to improve the flavor.

This was a great base recipe that I could lighten up and make my own. I cut the meat in half and added more chopped veggies (chopped red pepper instead of green minced garlic grated carrot and chopped zucchini) I used my own homemade marinara/italian seasoning and instead of water I used half the amount called for in red wine. Quite quick used on hand ingredients is kid friendly and was very filling. I made my own Parmesan Buttermilk Ranch rolls to eat with it and we really enjoyed this dinner. Read More
