This is good stuff, and I use it as a base recipe. I usually make the following changes: replace the beef with grounded vegetarian seitan log, (Seitan Log), increase the garlic to 1 head, add red pepper flakes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and bbq sauce. Sometimes I cut the tomato sauce in half or leave it out completely. This is cheap, makes lots, and tastes great - even better the next day. Thank you for this recipe.

Thanks to you and Emaw - this was delicious, and very flexible depending upon the ingredients on hand.

I thought this was a great recipe. Can be mild or spiced up to taste. I have a 13 month old and have been trying to transition him to regular foods and so far everything I make for dinner is too spicy, heavy, or has ingredients that are to hard for him to swallow. This though was a meal we were all able to enjoy and that I did not feel guilty about giving him because since I used lean ground beef it was an extremely healthy choice for my family. Also I usually have all the ingredients on hand for a quick wholesome meal. Thank you riffraff!

I'm waiting for DH to get home to eat this, but I can't quit "sampling"! This is sooooo good. I added hot paprika, chili powder, and a can of chili diced tomato sauce (this was an accident!). I also added some shredded cheese. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. And thanks to Emaw, too!

I followed the recipe exactly. But it needed more of a kick for me and my better half. I added granulated garlic, garlic oil, fried red onion, sweet chili sauce, sprinkle of fish sauce and about 1.5 cans of beer for liquid, instead of the pasta water. It turned out super! Thanks

This was very good and exactly like I remember it growing up. I needed the recipe cuz I couldn't find my original one. This tasted just as good. The only thing I did different is I used thawed frozen corn since we don't like canned corn.

The whole family loved this! What a quick and yummy weeknight dish. I did however have to omit the bell pepper - my boys won't eat them. And I used a small package of frozed niblets in butter sauce instead of the canned corn.

My hat is off to Emaw! Delicious, quick and filling ~ with enough leftovers for tomorrow as well : ) I made as directed, only subbing San Giorgio macaroni for the Dreamfield ;) I seasoned with only salt and pepper, which was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much for sharing your mom's recipes with us, Riff.
