Reviews forPot Roast with Spaghetti
"I have been making this recipe for over twenty years! The only changes I have made is only use one can of tomato paste and I cook mine in a 350º oven for the alotted time. This is a definite favorite in my household!"
"This was a success with my family. The beef was very tender, the sauce tasty, and everything went well with the spaghetti. I followed the recipe exactly; but the next time I make it, I may play around with the seasonings."
