Chili Spaghetti

"There are two variations in this. The first is to add an 8 ounce can sliced mushrooms to step 1. The other variation is to use 2 tablespoons chili powderinstead of 2 teaspoons chili powder."

Questions & Replies

  1. can you put spaghetti in raw..


  1. I loved the ease of this recipe by using the crockpot. Perfect for a fall day and quick easy supper for DH. I did add in one can of tomato paste as well. Thanks Doug!<br/>Made for PRMR.
  2. Made this pretty much as given, although I did add 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper! I didn't include mushrooms, & I kept the chili powder at 2 teaspoons, & we thoroughly enjoyed the spaghetti! We do chili & spaghetti every now & then, so your combo recipe was a delight to make! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]
  3. Well what a revelation!!!! <br/>I was intrigued by the fact the pasta didn't go mushy ( according to the reviews I read before I made this!) in the crock pot, and I just had to see this feat for myself. <br/>This turned out so beautifully-and all I had to do was cook off the mince and boil the spaghetti and then forget about it for a while-perfect for a busy day dinner.<br/>The entire family really enjoyed this, even the spaghetti hating DH gave his approval by pinching the leftovers to take to work for his lunch. If it was just me and DH, I would ramp up the spice a bit more, but for family consumption it was just right.<br/>Thanks weekend cooker. Made for Zaars Stars.
  4. Because I have to use gluten free pasta (which gets mushy if over cooked), I didn't cook this in the crock pot but on top of the stove instead. It was a nice quick meal and based on one of the other reviews, I did add extra chili powder. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
  5. This was good and easy to make but for us it needed a lot more spices. I also had to add a lot more tomato juice (I used V8). Definately a different spaghetti.
