    This has been a kid-friendly dish at my house over the years since it was first published. There are very few foods that all five kids like and this is one of them. My oldest called it "paskezzi" as a child. I have always broken regular spaghetti noodles into smaller pieces in place of the ready-cut spaghetti. I also only use half of an onion. This is a great recipe if you are looking for a one pot dish.

    This is an awesome meal. I have made it many times and everyone loves it. I can't find ready-cut spaghetti anymore, so I use elbow macaroni and it works fine.

    We have made this recipe frequently since it was published in TOH 15 years ago. We loved it, and it has been a family favorite ever since!

    This was super easy to make. Yes, it is a little bland as the other reviews stated, so I upped the seasonings. I will make this again.

    I gave this recipe three stars becasue it was edible however we did have to red pepper flakes before doing so because the flavor was just really bland. I will not make this again. Sorry.

    Yummy! Used chunked-up stewed tomatoes. I don't know what ready-cut spaghetti is, I used the regular stuff and I recommend you break it into 3" pieces before adding to the pan, otherwise it's hard to stir everything. My husband likes this better than "regular" spaghetti, I add about 1/4 tsp ground red pepper to spice it up for him.
