One-Pot Spaghetti Dinner
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min.
So Jim’s an Italian snobbish. Why would such an elite snobbish even make this recipe that he looks so down upon? I’m sure he detests those that found it favorable. Like me.
I am Italian and this would never be considered sugo (sauce) anywhere in Italy! Dried onion flakes, mace, allspice, ground mustard?? Disgusting! Why I even wasted good ingredients to give this recipe a try, is beyond me! I guess I thought it might be an interesting change from my pasta sauce on occasion! WOW - WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE!!! I'm sorry for having to give such a negative review, but I think people should be warned not to waste their money, food, or time on this nasty mess! Yuck!
I’ve loved this recipe since it first came out. I always use the mace and love the unique flavor it adds to the sauce. I even add mace to jarred sauce sometimes. Using frozen meatballs instead of ground beef is excellent, too. This easy one-pot recipe turns out great every time. Using an instant pot recipe as a guide I’ve converted it to a pressure cooker recipe and it works beautifully that way, too.
As a Sicilian-American, I find this recipe awful, inauthentic and ridiculous.

My family enjoyed the flavors of this meal. I prefer a non-meat spaghetti dish, but I would make this again. I made a few changes but only after I prepared the recipe as it reads above. I added diced green peppers and mushrooms and thought that the sauce was a little bland for my taste at that point. (I had used V8 low sodium in lieu of tomato juice.) Raiding the spice cabinet, I added about 2 T of sugar and 1 T. of Penzey's Mural of Spice. With these additions, I thought that recipe had a bit more depth of flavor.
Very good. I used diced onion instead of minced and added diced green peppers.
I made a few changes due to availability and preferences. First of all, I swapped out the mushrooms for diced bell peppers, and used one small onion. I did not have tomato juice or diced tomatoes, so used a second can of tomato sauce and a can of "25% less sodium chicken broth". I used ground pork for my meat, and used only black pepper, dried mustard, and allspice for seasoning. Compared to the recipe as written it should have been too thick, but I thought it was perfect. My husband, who usually does not like tomato sauces, said it was delicious. It doesn't get much better than that! I will make this again!
Loved the allspice in this! I left out the mace.......but the allspice was so subtle. New, go to recipe for quick spaghetti!
