It's not uncommon for folks to go back for second helpings of this hearty main dish when I share it at church potluck suppers. The combination of ground beef, noodles, cheese and a zippy tomato sauce is a crowd-pleaser. —Katherine Moss, Gaffney, South Carolina

"Tasty - and a nice, lighter substitute for regular spaghetti."

MY REVIEW

"I followed this recipe exactly except for a little less cayenne pepper, and all I can say is blah, blah, blah. No flavor at all! My husband liked it but he likes everything so he doesn't count. I won't be making this again and it was a huge disappointment ."

"Read all of the reviews, only change I made was to use 10 oz. of jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the 8 oz of tomatoe sauce. This is so very good and easy to make with plenty for leftovers. I think this will be even better the next day. This is a keeper for sure and if you need to feed a crowd this recipe will do it, just add bread and a little salad and you have dinner. Good recipe."

"My family liked this recipe better than another baked spaghetti recipe I usually make. I used diced can tomatoes with oregano, basil, and garlic and I left out the garlic powder."

"Love this casserole! It's like spaghetti meats chili, so it's a crowd pleaser. Even for the kids!"
