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.
I've made this recipe many times, even for company and everyone always loves it. It could use more sauce, because it doesn't really seem to stay together, but I always forget. I skip the green pepper and use diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings.
Great recipe to change up spaghetti.
I would make it again with some additions. It seemed a little dry so I would add another can of tomatoes and more spices.
I also added some garlic and more chili powder.
Made this recipe tonight for dinner and everyone loved it. I did not include the cayenne pepper because of my families history of heart burn, but I think next time I'll add an additional can of tomato sauce!!
