About this recipe: A hearty and well flavoured pasta dish. Vermicelli pasta is baked with beef mince, sausagemeat and bacon in a tomato sauce. Enjoy with a side salad and/or garlic bread.
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 made this to appease the meat lovers in my family. To lower the fat content I used ground chuck, turkey Italian sausage, and reduced fat bacon. 2 tablespoons of diced onion sauteed with meat. I did precook the bacon, but not to a crispy state. I used fire-roasted tomatoes, and a thicker tomato sauce. Sugar was reduced significantly with no detriment to outcome. Followed cooking times and temps to the letter. I received many compliments on this dish. Personally, I felt the bacon flavor was more powerful than it should be. Still, I had a second helping. I am looking forward to my leftovers! - 26 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
