Very tasty!! A new twist for spaghetti. My daughter is always asking for spaghetti so for a change of pace I made this for her, she loved it!. Simple to make and you have all ingredients in the cupboard.
I made this dish when I first saw it in the TASTE OF HOME cookbook. My family loved it, especially our oldest son. Always made it for him when he came home on leave or special occassions for him. I use the diced tomatos that are flavred with Italian seasonings. This is a favorite pot luck also. Can't go wrong with this one!
WOW - this is GOOD! Very similar to comfort food my mother used to make - she used sliced green olives instead of green pepper. My husband is not a casserole lover but I made him eat it and he enjoyed it too. Definitely will make again - a keeper.
Sound so good!! Can't wait to try this. Have been looking for a simple, easy to make spaghetti sauce recipe!! Love that it's all combined!
After couple of minor changes to the recipe it is one of my family's favorite. When I first made it I thought it was kind of bland and didn't seem to hold together. I added Diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings and deleted the can of tomato sauce and in place of it I added a jar of Classico Spaghetti Sauce either Sweet Basil or just Basil (not meat flavored) and found that the minor changes just made a huge difference. Major hit with my family. I also added another Tbsp. of brown sugar. They have asked me to make this over and over. Also, it past the test with my Mother and step-father Charley and was told I made it with Love. That is an accomplishment if they approved the dish. Loved Loved this recipe. Would be good to take to potlucks without a doubt.
