MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2015

"I love it, but I only gave 4 stars as I had to change some things to improve it to actually taste like spaghetti. First I added a can of chopped tomatoes to go with the can of sauce. Then I added a tablespoon of Italian seasoning. I may add more than that next time as I still had to sprinkle on as I ate it. Needs more garlic salt too.

I used a whole onion and next time I will add a whole cup of mushrooms rather than the half cup they call for.
As one person said...as written it is pretty bland...as I found out the first time I made it. With the above improvements, it was much better. I will continue making and enjoying with the listed improvements."

"Pretty quick and easy. I substituted Ragu for the tomato sauce which helped with the liquids and the flavor."

"My family was very disappointed in this - sounded like a tasty quick supper but we found it to be pretty bland and way too starchy tasting. Not awful but not good enough to make again."

"I left off the peppers and mushrooms because I don't like them AT ALL. I love spaghetti sauce made with ground turkey."
