    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This tastes even better the next day and freezes well also --- serve this on cooked spaghetti with crusty bread on the side, all ground beef or Italian sausage meat may be used if desired --- plan ahead this sauce needs some time to cook, the longer you cook it the thicker and richer it will be, you may also make this in a crockpot --- the recipe may be doubled, adjust the chili powder and all ingredient amounts to taste, try not to omit the Italian pepperoni, it really adds extra flavor to this dish! :)

      Hey....just made this and it is superb!!! Just for personal preference....I put half alfredo sauce (Classico's roasted red pepper) and half the spaghetti sauce suggested and it is just a creamier chili sauce:) I love cheese!!! Mmmmmmmmm. Thanks
