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 Mar. 19, 2016

"Did I make the same recipe as everyone else? I couldn't even salvage this; it went straight down to the dumpster. This tasted like tomato juice soup with pasta and ground beef. I had used V-8 juice instead and added A LOT more spices and it still tasted like nothing but tomato juice."

"This is good, somewhat on the soupy side. I added more salt and granulated garlic for more flavor. It would've been OK even without the extra seasoning. Makes a good one pot meal which saves on dishes that have to be washed after supper. Thumbs up on that!"
