Right after I got married, my aunt gave me her recipe for skillet spaghetti and told me it was ideal for a quick weeknight meal. Over the years I’ve tinkered with the ingredients and played with the seasonings to make it a healthier dish and one my family truly loves. —Kristen Killian, Depew, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2014

This recipe didn't have a lot of flavor to me and we have fairly bland things here because I have to cook for someone who can have very little sodium. I did leave out the salt and used tomatoes with no salt added for about everything that was a tomato product. However, I added Mrs. Dash original to replace the salt and I did add 3 or 4 drops of hot sauce. Truth is, the person who said earlier that it was just as easy to use their own leftover chili and add pasta is who I agree with.

I added a little extra salt and fresh ground pepper. Everyone loved it! Thanks!

I wanted this to be so good, but ultimately, it was only average in taste. I prefer my favorite chili recipe over this and I can always add pasta to that if I want it. It was easy to prepare, but just didn't pack much punch.

This type of meal is always a favorite around my house. I used V8 Hot & Spicy instead of tomato juice, and I added a can of dark red kidney beans, and a bit of cumin... Yum.

MY REVIEW

This is definitely a crowd pleaser. 7 of my 12 grandchildren sat down to the table and they all loved it. I might use the Hot Mexican chili powder the next time if I'll have more adults sitting at the table. But this was perfect for EVERYONE and it's not often that I can get them all to agree on a single meal. Thank YOU!
