Thank you! My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. It does make a lot though, so I put the leftovers in hot, sterilized jars and put them in the oven at 275 for 20 minutes with lose fitting lids. once out of the oven you can tighten the lids (carefully). Once the lid seals you've got extra canned sauce for future use. It works really well, and you'll get to enjoy this yummy sauce again, and again without the added effort of making it. =)

While I love the flavor of beans and corn, and the cumin was a great touch, this recipe was not a hit in our house. My husband (ever the eater) did not finish his plate at dinner that night or for leftovers at lunch the next day. My sister also said she would eat it but would not make it, request it, or really even be happy about it being cooked. My opinion, the balance between pasta and veggies is good. This way you can each more than you should without feeling too bad since it is about half veggies. But there is something that is just not right about the flavor. Oh yeah, it is really filling...which is good. Good to try once....but not to repeat.

Great change from regular spagetti. My five year old loved it. We topped it with shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.

This went over pretty good. I personally liked it and would make it again, however, I would add some type of meat. This is what everyone missed :o)

I didn't use hot sauce. It was delicious! I will definitely make this again. It is worth it because it takes plain old spagetti and sauce and it makes a full meal out of it. Otherwise I would need to add another dish or something to help fill me up.

Really yummy and super easy! Love the flavor of cumin and hot sauce together, they do add a special "kick" to spaghetti sauce!

this tasted unappealing to both me and my husband, I got my daughter to try one bite (the rules in the house) but she wouldn't eat anymore.
