I thought this was really good, although I did make a few changes. I changed the setting so that it was for 2 people. I used a whole small onion. I used 3 tbl spoons of the paste and 1 1/2 tsps of the turmeric. And I added 1 tsp of white pepper, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, and some cayenne. My boyfriend loved it! Nothing fancy...but good and easy.

I liked the flavor of this spaghetti, but I think the sauce needs more sauce. It only made just enough to barely coat the pasta. I think I would add a little more to it next time, but overall this was a good recipe.

This smelled good when the beef was cooking but I was a little confused in the last stage - how can the noodles and beef cook for 30-40 min without completely sticking to the pot? The final product was a little bland, but still edible.
