My family really did like this, and they aren't always fond of steering away from traditional italian spaghetti. It was a breeze to cook, which was perfect for the busy day I had. I made a vegetarian version at same time using Yves ground round. Worked out really well. Added some corn and served grated cheddar on the side. Thanks for a real kid pleaser!
