The amount of ketchup was a red flag to me so I cut that amount in half and used tomato sauce for the rest and a little less beef stock just so it had the right consistency. Ketchup just is too tart to be used in that quantity for this recipe (maybe cheaper brands aren't as tart? I don't know what kind twbart72 used). With those modifications this recipe is perfect.

This recipe had too much catsup in it.. I added sugar to tame the tanginess but it did not help. will not make again

Love it! 2nd time making it and this time I doubled everything and instead of 6oz pasta doubling to 12 I used a 16oz package and it was awesome and went further. Will be making our spaghetti this way from now on. I don't measure the onions and cheese and just estimate instead but everything else I measure

Alishan823 COMMENT: Can anyone help me? The 3/4 cup beef stock, am I suppose to put that in the mixture dry?
CDKitchen Staff Reply: I'm not sure what you mean by "dry". You pour the beef stock into the meat mixture at the same time you add the spaghetti. This is the liquid that will cook the spaghetti (there is no real quantity of liquid added up until this point).

I used to live in Winston-Salem and ate K&W spaghetti often. This recipe is spot on! Absolutely delicious.

Super Chunk REVIEW:
Made this last night, not knowing what "K&W' is I can't compare. Over all I liked the dish, the ketchup made it slightly too sweet for my taste but a few shakes of season salt tamed that. It is a good platform to start experimenting from if you're into that. Next time, more chili powder, garlic and a couple of beaten eggs are going in with along with some riccota and a 1/4 cup less ketchup. Been in the fridge over night, I'm sure it'll be even better today.
