This is an expensive and very bland dish. No taste. I added Italian seasoning, garlic and salt. Could not decide if this was an Italian dish(like spaghetti) or something else.

I didn't make this exactly as written. I didn't have any tomato paste, so I substituted tomato puree, to help strengthen the flavor. I didn't have dice tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, but I had Hunt's Fire Roasted Tomatoes (YUM) so I used those and added in diced fresh basil, garlic, and oregano. I cooked the garlic with the onion and beef at the beginning, and added the other spices with the tomatoes. Also I used BEEF broth, since the recipe calls for ground BEEF, not chicken. I left out the spinach cause people here aren't fans. With these changes, it was a big hit. I'm making it again tonight, but using some andouille sausage cut up and simmered in the sauce. This is a great basic recipe, just needed a little tweaking to fit the palates of my eaters!
