Reviews for Chili Spaghetti
"Easy preperation makes this recipe a good choice. Cooking the spaghetti in the tomato liquid is a neat way to add flavor."
"One of my favorite recipes!"
"Love it easy to make for a crowd nice twist in flavor"
"I have made this time and time again, and it comes out perfect every time. I use brand name ingredients ,including the tomatoe juice ( V-8 ) and make sure the spaghetti is cooked through. this recipe is a keeper in my family for sure."
"Please do NOT use lean ground beef in this recipe unless you adjust the liquid amount. The pasta needs the liquid and the fats so it doesn't dry out."
"Holy [expletive] the best [expletive] chili ever"
"Made just as the recipe said.....not good. The spaghetti was dried in a couple of spots ,and it just didn't taste good even though I used chili seasoning. The ground beef I used was very lean.....maybe it was too lean to have a lot of flavor. We didn't like the kidney beans in it, either...they were the dark red kind."
"I like the quickness of making this recipe. However, it seems that it lacks something. I am thinking about next time I make it put some actually chili seasoning in it to really make it taste like chili. My husband and I agree we like the idea but it was too bland for us. I think it will be much better if I add some more seasoning."
"I've been making this wonderful recipe for years, but I've done it in my large electric skillet. It cooks within 25 to 30 minutes, saving on power and time. I even have done it with whole wheat spaghetti. I too add extra ingredients to make a bigger dish."
