A very easy and fast microwaveable main dish -- sort of a cross between chili and spaghetti with meat sauce.

This was fast and good, but I doubled the spices and added a tblspoon of cocoa powder to make it a little more Cincinnati Chili style. Also did it on the stovetop just as quickly.

This is so quick and easy. I made it a bit more "mexican" by substituting rotell for the crushed tomatoes and black beans for kidney beans...yummy!

Good, good stuff! I was going to make just regular old spaghetti, then decided last minute I wanted spaghetti with a test, so I found this! I want to stress that I DID NOT make this in the microwave, though I suppose it would be okay. I just thought it would taste better after simmering on the stove for awhile. The only change I made was using ground turkey rather than ground beef. Oh, and the sauce....do not leave off the sauce. The sauce makes this, in my opinion. Yum, yum, yum!
