OMG!!!! This was delicious and extremely quick. I've made many versions of spaghetti but for 30 min and under, this is THE winner. My kids, 9 and 7 both agree that this was yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

Wow, was this ever yummy and so easy! I did substitute hot Italian sausage for the hamburger. I also halved the recipe and used 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder and let the sauce simmer while the noodles were cooking. Made for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.
