    I used bowtie pasta, browned the bacon, browned the sausage and ground beef together and sprinkled with mozarella cheese. Wouldn't add as much sugar next time.  -  19 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a very good meal. We substituted the sugar, canned tomatoes and can of tomato sauce for two 28 oz jars of Paul Newman spaghetti sauce and also used one 16 oz package of Spaghettini instead of 12 oz. We also subsituted Jimmy Dean Hickory Smoked Pork Sausage for the Italian Sausage since we had it on hand. This meal had alot of flavor and was very tastey. Since we used ready made spaghetti sauce we lowerd the simmer time to about 15 mins before backing for 30 mins. Total prep and cook time was less than an hour.  -  17 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used canned roasted garlic tomatoes and it basically did the seasoning for me. My picky boyfriend even liked it, but we both agreed that it could have used more of the tomaote/meat mix. I didn't even use all the noodles. Next time I will add more bacon and sausage, and maybe more sauce. I made german runzas for a side and it was a great dinner.  -  18 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
