    This is one of my family’s favorite foods. I add bell peppers and more onion, as they like the vegetables in it to make it taste different then regular Italian pasta.

    I cheat and add extra beef stock and add the uncocked noodles right to the pan. I season the meat and brown really well. This is still my favorite though. My whole family loves it.

    Too bland. Followed the directions exactly as written. To me it was just a different form of spaghetti with meat sauce.

    We used a different recipe... also added jalapeno, basil, mushrooms and Pork sausage.... plus Wesstershire and chilli powder. WAS BETTER than you would belive. We also used different noodles. BUT this ended out GREAT!

    Turned out great! Made it with onion powder instead of an actual onion.

    Loved it. I used Cento brand Italian seasoning, which made it a little spicy from the amount of crushed red pepper in their mix. It went surprisingly far ( serving size wise) for only one pound of meat and one pound of noodles.

    Great, don’t cook the pasta separate, add the uncooked noodles directly to the simmering meat

    the recipe came out great. however, with the portions of rhe spices it came out bland to me. add more of the spices and you will be all set.

    Really good. I used tomatoes with no salt and salted them myself to make it low sodium.
