We really liked this, however, we did make some modifications based on other reviews. We used Classico Spicy Red Pepper Pasta Sauce to give this extra kick. Rather than using bacon, we used hamburger. We doubled the heavy cream and milk to keep everything more moist. With these changes it was great! We will definitely be having this one again.


In all honesty, I didn't eat this. Several others at the wake did though, and everyone raved about it. I'm only giving it 4 stars though because it did like a curdle-y thing that made everyone think that the sauce was some form of beef that roughly resembled canned dog food. Seriously, it looked pretty bad. I doubled the recipe though, and it was all eaten, so I don't know what tweaks, if any, it could have used. Oh, I didn't realize that I didn't have bacon though, so I used pepperoni.

I wasn't too impressed. It tasted to me like an "adult version" of Spaghetti O's. Not enough flavor for me. I may try it again, but will have to add many many many more spices and/or flavor to make it more than noddles with a tomato cream sauce....which is really all that it was.
