    I seasoned the meat with onion, garlic powder and chili powder at the beginning. I add beef bullion as well. Other than that it was great! i did miss the flavor of green pepper, will definitely be adding that next time.

    It was delicious! I did add and change it some based on what I had on hand. I used 28oz. can of tomato puree instead of sauce. 1tbsp. of brown sugar, 2 beef boulion cubes, 2 cups of water and some leftover marinara sauce. I cooked pasta seperately and added at the end.

    So and satisfying and full of flavor. It was a big hit with my husband who had never tried it before and the toddler gobbled it up happily as well. I highly recommend you try this recipe, you won't be disappointed.

    My 14 yr old son will eat this entire meal by himself and asks for it several times a week. He loves the chew of the pasta, along with savory of tomatoes, soy sause and we also add worshire sauce. the 1/4 cup I usually get is very filling and has a great homestyle flavor... perfect "go to" meal.
