Review This Recipe
This is an excellent meal. I love this meal better than regular spaghetti.
We enjoyed this meal. This was quick and easy to make. I added a can of black beans to the sauce.
This was a very good meal. My husband and young boys both liked it. I used a little more ground beef than called for, and also a little more salsa. I did use mild salsa so that it wouldn't be too spicy for my children.
I made this last night and it was a hit. I would have preferred a bit more meat so I'll use more next time. I also added some cumin. I think it made a big difference. Great!
