A nice quick and simple recipe. I add a little bit of Dashida (an asian beef soup stock), Garlic Powder, Pepper, Sugar, and a few dashes of hot sauce for spice. Just not too much of everything, just enough to give it a little something. Next time, I will add onions.

My Grandmother in law used to make this all the time too. She always served it with "smokies" (smoked sausages) Brings back fond memories of Nana! Thanks for posting.

Being from the South, we use bacon grease instead of butter. Try it!! :-)

My Mom used to make a version of this and she chopped up an 8oz block of cheddar cheese into cubes and added that. I make it alot. You could also use canned chopped tomatoes that come in italian and mexican style with spices already added.

This sounded like comfort food to me so I gave it a try and what do you know.....my grandma (and my dad) used to make this for us too only with ground beef in it. Thanks for reminding me! I will make this again but add the ground beef next time :)

I really liked this. Just a simple meal that was easy to make. I used blue box noodles because I was out of elbows so I had to get creative. I served it with a side salad to round out dinner. Thanks so much for posting!

My parents grandparents made this all the time. I love making it, though I have never seen it with added butter. I may try it. My dads mom added crisco to it once and it was awful, but everyone else went wild.. So great recipe, I like mine with black pepper, will try with garlic powder as suggested by another poster.. This is comfort food for me. Glad to see that others find it to be good as well.

This recipe saved me tonight. I wasted 35 mins trying do to a different one and it didnt turn out at all so when i came across this i was very happy. my boys (ages 3 & 1) is enjoying it right now. i added some garlic powder to the tomatoes and had a can of stewed tomatoes that I needed to get rid of. I plan on buying crushed tomatoes to try with this too since the stewed ones all went to the very bottom of the pot. Thanks so much for this life saving recipe for my boys!!

I was looking for a simple recipe to use up a can of crushed tomatoes that I had and was thrilled to find this one. I was pleased with the way this came out although it wasn't what I expected. It was sweeter and tangier than I thought, but good nonetheless. Thanks for posting!

My hubsand and kids loved it. Reminded me of Spaghetti-O's, both smell and taste and I was turned off.
