I used bowtie pasta, browned the bacon, browned the sausage and ground beef together and sprinkled with mozarella cheese. Wouldn't add as much sugar next time.

I did not have any sausage so I used more bacon. The bacon never crisped up but the bacon gave a great flavor to the dish while it was cooking, so I don't know if it would be better cooking it with the beef or the sausage. My husband was skeptical but he had seconds. Will definitely try again.

This was a very good meal. We substituted the sugar, canned tomatoes and can of tomato sauce for two 28 oz jars of Paul Newman spaghetti sauce and also used one 16 oz package of Spaghettini instead of 12 oz. We also subsituted Jimmy Dean Hickory Smoked Pork Sausage for the Italian Sausage since we had it on hand. This meal had alot of flavor and was very tastey. Since we used ready made spaghetti sauce we lowerd the simmer time to about 15 mins before backing for 30 mins. Total prep and cook time was less than an hour.

I used canned roasted garlic tomatoes and it basically did the seasoning for me. My picky boyfriend even liked it, but we both agreed that it could have used more of the tomaote/meat mix. I didn't even use all the noodles. Next time I will add more bacon and sausage, and maybe more sauce. I made german runzas for a side and it was a great dinner.

I made this to appease the meat lovers in my family. To lower the fat content I used ground chuck, turkey Italian sausage, and reduced fat bacon. 2 tablespoons of diced onion sauteed with meat. I did precook the bacon, but not to a crispy state. I used fire-roasted tomatoes, and a thicker tomato sauce. Sugar was reduced significantly with no detriment to outcome. Followed cooking times and temps to the letter. I received many compliments on this dish. Personally, I felt the bacon flavor was more powerful than it should be. Still, I had a second helping. I am looking forward to my leftovers!

This had kind of a peculiar vinegary/sugar/bacon flavor. I don't know if i'll make this one again.

This is an excellent recipe. I made it exactly the way it was written. The sauce had a lot of flavor. I would'nt change a thing. Thanks for the recipe!

Make this all the time as a side dish using a pound of fried and chopped bacon as the only meat, and adding it in right before serving. Following the rest of the recipe.
