"Found the recipe today and decided to make it, It was very cheap to make and easy. Made enough for 2 - 3 people. Depending on how hungry you are. One tip would be to add chicken and/or beef to the sauce. Other then that, A +"

"This has been a standby of mine since I found it in Quick Cooking as a newlywed. My husband and I love it- so simple, inexpensive and tasty! I use Ragu Sauteed Onion and Garlic- accept no substitutes! :)"

"This dish turned out good, but next time I'll either cut back on or not use the italian salad dressing mix which made it too spicy. Thank you for sharing recipe though!!"

"A little to spicy for my family. Maybe I will not buy the garlic and onion sauce and try a traditional kind."
