Reviews for Confetti Spaghetti
"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!"
"I have made this recipe many times since it was first published. I always use a 16oz jar of spaghetti sauce and a can of Rotel in lieu of the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Sometimes I substitute ground italian sausage for a portion of the hamburger meat. It's always tastes delicious and every time I serve it to company, they love it."
