"This tastes like bad spaghetti-o's. I don't really feel the pasta went well, and the sauce had a strange taste. My 5 year old cooked this with just a little help from me, so i had to eat it. It was easy, just not very good."

"The main reason I tried it was because it was first printed in a Cooking with Kids article in the magazine. It was more mild than regular chili so it went over very well in our household of picky eaters."
