Right after I got married, my aunt gave me her recipe for skillet spaghetti and told me it was ideal for a quick weeknight meal. Over the years I’ve tinkered with the ingredients and played with the seasonings to make it a healthier dish and one my family truly loves. —Kristen Killian, Depew, New York

"This dish came out full of flavor and it's so easy. I especially love the fact that it's all cooked in one pot, making clean up a breeze. I don't measure pasta, I eye-ball it. So I probably added a little more pasta than what the recipe calls for, but in the end, it didn't come out soupy like some reviewers have said. It was perfect. I served it with dinner rolls. It got the stamp of approval from kids and hubby as well!"

"Did I make the same recipe as everyone else? I couldn't even salvage this; it went straight down to the dumpster. This tasted like tomato juice soup with pasta and ground beef. I had used V-8 juice instead and added A LOT more spices and it still tasted like nothing but tomato juice."

"This is good, somewhat on the soupy side. I added more salt and granulated garlic for more flavor. It would've been OK even without the extra seasoning. Makes a good one pot meal which saves on dishes that have to be washed after supper. Thumbs up on that!"

"This recipe didn't have a lot of flavor to me and we have fairly bland things here because I have to cook for someone who can have very little sodium. I did leave out the salt and used tomatoes with no salt added for about everything that was a tomato product. However, I added Mrs. Dash original to replace the salt and I did add 3 or 4 drops of hot sauce. Truth is, the person who said earlier that it was just as easy to use their own leftover chili and add pasta is who I agree with."

"I wanted this to be so good, but ultimately, it was only average in taste. I prefer my favorite chili recipe over this and I can always add pasta to that if I want it. It was easy to prepare, but just didn't pack much punch."
