I have to say that this recipe was one of the best that this site had to offer in a long time. I would have given it 5 stars, but I felt incline to add some tomato sauce to it. I feel that if I had left it the way that it was, it may have turned out too dry. I also added some italian seasoning to it as well. Everyone loved this dish, and it is something that I will make again!!!! Try this recipe...and just so that you know for me to rave about a recipe...it has got to be pretty darn good!!!
This is a nice idea for spaghetti, however it is extremely bland! It was just so, so dry. I would recommend doubling the sloppy joe sauce and using about 12 oz. pasta.
This is the first time i have felt compelled to write a review. This was awsome! I would have NEVER thought to use Sloppy Joe as the base fore spaghetti sauce!
I did have to alter the recipe a bit (becuase I was out of a bunch of stuff) so I used onion powder (out of onion) and added a some italian seasoning (out of bread crumbs) and added some tomato sauce becuase it looked a bit to thick. But it was wonderful. My husband and I don't like spaghetti and rarely ever have it, but this will definatly go into the rotation! GIVE IT A TRY!!
This was very simple and quick in a pinch. My boyfriend and co-worker enjoyed it. I didn't change a thing.
Awesome idea! all i did different was add half a can of plain tomato sauce to it because i had leftovers , but truly I wouldn't have changed a thing if i wasn't so anal about wasting food! My husband was happy for the change from regular pasta sauce. it kicked it up a notch, without having to do anything!
My husband calls this "man food." This is pretty good. A quick and good meal. I did double the sloppy joe mix.
I had leftover chunky sauce w/peppers and onions and ground beef, about 2 cups, added a can of sloppy joe sauce, mixed it with the spaghetti and topped with mozzarella, didn't use the bread crumbs, the kids gobbled it up. This is a great recipe to feed a crowd and a good use of leftover sauce, didn't have enough for dinner, but adding the sloppy joe sauce made it. Thanks for the idea!
Loved this so much that I signed up to allrecipes.com just so I could give it a 5 star rating.
