"I love this recipe but I also add additional sauce and like to use small egg noodles instead of spaghetti. It holds together better and is easier to eat. It's also nice to change the cheese to Italian Blend (pre-shredded in bag).Always a winner at potlucks!"
"I make something like this but I leave out brown sugar and add corn...yummy!"
"I have been making a very similar recipe for years but never added the brown sugar. I'll try that next time. I break my spaghetti into 4 pieces for easier eating, and I add some oregano and a little season salt. One of my favorite go to, I don't want to spend a lot of time cooking recipes."
"This is pretty good, but it does need a couple of tweaks to make it worthy of 5 stars. First, based on comments from others, I tripled the amount of tomato sauce, and it was still a bit dry. Second, I would increase the spice level dramatically ... I couldn't even taste the garlic, chili powder or cayenne. Next time, instead of plain tomato sauce I'll use a big jar of good arrabbiata pasta sauce, which should help with both issues. DH said he'd like me to add some olives next time, and we both want to try a version using alfredo sauce. It's definitely worth experimenting with!"
"i made this for supper tonight and it was a hit with everyone! I did add oregano and basil!"
