    This was average. Not very flavorful - had to add a lot of spices and sauce. Won’t make again.

    I thought this dish turned out great! Easy to make. I used Fussili pasta & low fat evaporated milk. Next time I might put a little Panko on the top. I would definitely make this again.

    Too much smoked paprika for my taste. Would reduce to 1 tsp. Overall, enjoyed the creaminess, flavor, and simplicity.

    Delicious! I omitted the flour and used heavy cream. I didn’t have Rotel, but I used a can of tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano. I also sautéed bell pepper! Delicious!

    Good but I had little taste even after all the ingredients. Just tasted noodles with ground beef and cheese and tomatoes etc.....But will definately try my own version of it next time. Garlic bread helps

    Instead of diced tomatoes and jalapeño peppers, I just used a can of rotel and it was tasty.

    Delicious!!! My daughter couldn’t stop “taste testing” it while I was cooking it. I followed most of the recipe. I added some cayenne because I didn’t have jalapeños. I also added mozzarella slices on top.

    Very good! Changes I made - I used pickled jalapeños, bell peppers instead of tomatoes, added the whole can of evaporated milk, added cilantro, extra cheese, breadcrumbs on top with extra cheese. Turned out delicious, will make again.

    Great! I added my own spices after tasting the flavoured beef and added more milk. I would say the pasta is a bit dry and needed more spice but other than that my family and I enjoyed it.

    Turned out pretty well! I tailored the spices as it wasn’t seasoned enough for me, and used half and half because I had no evaporated milk. The kids loved it!

    Too much thyme. Other than that it was good and I’d make it again.

    It was okay, didnt not taste as fresh or aromatic as hoped. Is heavy dish.

    It was delicious! My husband and two teenagers loved it and the ingredients meshed well together from the hint of spiciness from the jalapeño to the creaminess of the evaporated milk and the tomatoes to give a good base with the spices and garlic to add to the flavor! We will definitely make this again! A great alternative to the plain spaghetti that we seem to have way too much!

    Unfortunately I don't think I can give a good review because I highly modified the recipe, but it definitely provided a solid base to work off of.
