    This was a quick and easy meal that the whole family enjoyed. We actually liked it better than my usual spaghetti recipe because the broken noodles were much easier to eat. I used a can of crushed tomatoes because my oldest son won't eat spaghetti sauce if he can see pieces of tomato. I added a packet of spaghetti seasoning, fresh basil (had it on hand), and garlic. This isn't a gourmet recipe, of course, but pretty darn good!  -  27 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe tastes good, but the spaghetti needed more water before it became tender. I also added fresh minced garlic and that gave it more flavor.  -  22 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a fairly easy recipe and it was good, but not great. If you are looking to make a quick meal for your family this is a great choice, but I wouldn't recomend it for guests or a dinner party.  -  07 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
