This dish has been in my family for as long as anyone can remember. Since I am from Louisiana people eat red beans with rice, not with spaghetti; needless to say none of our friends enjoy this meal. Do not add meat.

I loved the simplicity of this vegetarian entree. Season to taste for me meant olive oil, Italian seasonings, salt & pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese. Yummy! Next time, I'll try it with pesto as the seasoning! Read More

Don’t discount this recipe because of its simplicity. It is what makes it so good. Also, don’t be discouraged by the negative reviews. If you like simple dishes that have rustic flavor, try this. I really, really liked this recipe. As written, it works exactly as stated. Keep your eye on the water. Don’t be tempted to add too much. If you keep it at a stew level, keep stirring, it will produce a lovely sauce to keep the pasta moist. Seasoning just with salt is very tasty. I added a bit of creole seasoning and thought that was nice, too. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

When you have a empty cupboard and all you have is kidney beans and spaghetti noodles this is the recipe for you. I had my doubts but at this time I was like why in the hell not. I added country crock butter, diced up tomatoes and salt and peppered that sucker up. It was surprisingly yummy. Read More
