    I have made this several times. I tweak the stronger spices to suit my children's taste. It is easy and oh-so-yummy!

    This went over very well with my family of picky eaters! Simple and delicous. I also tried it with a jar of spaghetti sauce with mushrooms instead of the tomato sauce and it was very good!
