My mother pretty much insulted my cooking after i made this. She said it sucked. I kind of liked it but, it could use some adjustments. It's pretty much spaghetti without the pasta and, my mom loves spaghetti but, only when she makes it though. It might just be her.
I agree this seemed a little too salty (and I love my salt!). It seemed as if it needed to be served with pasta rather than on hamburger buns.
It turned out way too salty for our taste with the sauce and pepperoni and cheese.
It was a nice change from the typical sloppy joe's... It will go into our regular lunch/dinner rotation. :)
I made a few changes--added a little extra spice, including some garlic, and left out the green pepper--and these were a hit. I just broiled them on foil for a no-mess cleanup. Will try the reviewer's suggestion of freezing serving size portions next time; these would make a great quick meal anytime.
