    This was absolutely delicious! I don't think I would've known it was venison if I hadn't cooked it myself! For all of you hunter's wifes who aren't wild about venison...this one's for you!!!  -  13 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Super good!! I used canned spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce! I also left out the green pepper, but put in a can of diced tomatoes! Simply seasoned it how we like it, baked and served!! We really enjoyed this dish, and next time I may add fresh mushrooms and use regular spaghetti noodles rather than thin!  -  12 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great tasting! I cooked the meet and sauces in a stew pot then served it over brown rice. It was a good twist on pasta or rice with meat and sauce. The spices complimented well.  -  02 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
