Made this last night. We love K&W's version and this one was delicious. The entire family enjoyed it.
KellyDreams September 10, 2014 COMMENT: I googled a recipe for K&W Spaghetti because I wanted to make it using gluten-free pasta. I'm kind of shocked that it doesn't have spaghetti sauce in it! After reading the comments, it seems pretty clear that the specific brand of ketchup used really does change the flavor. Any advice about that?

Made this plenty of times, it's great, plus it freezes good and microwaves good. I have also made with just useing Manwich, beef and cheddar.

Loved this recipe,is an exact copy of K&W. I do add 1/2 diced green pepper to the mix, perfection!
K&W Fan June 21, 2014 REVIEW:
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
Mandy February 2, 2014 REVIEW:
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

Very good. I was out of chili powder so I used some taco seasoning instead.

ABsolutely just like K&W! This has to be the original recipe because it is exactly like I remember.
Alishan823 April 20, 2013 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 January 24, 2012 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.
