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!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

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!
