"Quick and easy. Green pepper, onion and red pepper flakes are optional. I usually skip the bell pepper and onion and add a 7 oz can of drained mushroom pieces instead."
Serving Size: 1 (290 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
Here is my alt:
Use 2 1/2 cups beef stock (only 15 cals per cup) - Trader Joes.
When putting all the liquids together, use a 24 oz can of raghu in the can traditional then and a drained 14 oz can of diced tomato w/mild green chiles.
Once up to a boil, put it on low and cover for 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally to make sure your noodles are noodled.
Then, if you've had a glass of red, add a splash from the bottle.
Viola! Perfection in one pan.
Cheers and a big thanks to Lisa1 from the dad that likes to cook, especially if its one dish!
"This is very similar to a recipe I had, in early marriage days! I just wasn't feeling the idea of boiling noodles, and making sauce (separate), so I looked up your recipe. I used beef, didn't add green peppers, onions, or mushrooms (don't care for any of those, in my sauce); but, I did double up on garlic and red pepper flakes, and I used 1 c. veggie stock and 1 c. water, in place of all the water. I loved the soupy spaghetti, with all the pasta well-covered! Thanks!"
"Good basic recipe. I used 1/2 lb chopped tempeh and 4 oz mushrooms instead of the turkey, and 1/2 glass white wine, a 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and a couple of tbsp of fresh basil and rosemary instead of the sauce. Garnished w/ chopped olives."
"I have used this as the basis of my spag. recipe. I love that it is not dirtying more dishes than necessary. Now for my changes: my hubby will not eat green peppers or onions that he can see, so I omit the green pepper and use onion powder. I prefer ground beef. The biggest change I made was to substitute beef broth for some of the water to both boost the nutrition and add flavor. It's a super recipe! Thanks for posting."
"Quick and easy. I made it with 93% lean ground turkey and Fiber Gourmet pasta to lower calories and increase the fiber content. I added about four ounces of sliced mushrooms. I made this dish with Hunt's sauce and it definitely needed additional flavor. I added oregano and other Italian seasonings, as well as additional garlic. It was good but still needs tweaking. But it's worth the effort for an easy spaghetti type dish. I'll post my version when I am satisfied. Thanks for sharing this."
