    Charmie777's Note:

    This is a tasty alternative to regular spaghetti. I love that it's very light and can be made lighter by using ground turkey. I also like using red bell pepper along with the green. Also, it's great over any kind of pasta you want. I've used corkscrew and elbows before!!!

      Have to rate it 3 stars...being of mexican descent this is what we call FIDEO but not used with spaghetti pasta but instead vermicelli (fideo). Although the taste were almost similar. Pretty good recipe.

      Delicious! I made as directed (using 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne) and this was just yummy for lunch. I shredded up some medium cheddar and chopped up some green onions to throw on top. My dad stopped by as I was setting the table for my hubby and I, and he grabbed a plate and ate with us - he LOVED this, raved about how it was better than my regular spaghetti sauce (which he really likes, too). He liked it so much, in fact, that he took the left-overs home with him. Hubby & I thought this was tasty, too. Groovy GastroGnome travelling the ZWT5. Thanks for posting this recipe for the tour! I will make it again!

      We all enjoyed this combo and will make it again with a couple of spice adjustments for our (wimpy) palates. The plates were licked clean so I would say it was a hit! We often put our chili over rice and this would also be great served that way. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Charmie!
