I decided to add some ground beef to mine because my husband and my kid are both meat lovers, the Harissa spaghetti was brilliant!

Zaria Vinette

Spaghetti from heaven, I made this and mini cherry cheese cakes. Love them both equally.

Elodie Buechele

I've never tried Harissa Spaghetti but I am glad I did today, it was totally worth the time it took to make. Delicious, thank you so much.

Audree Savich

Prepared this recipe for dinner for my husband and he absolutely loved it, will definitely be making this again in the future.

Dani Bahnmiller

Prepared the spaghetti according to the guidelines but they turned out to be overcooked so I remade them and it turned out fine.

Lillyanna Carawan

I made this for spaghetti monday for me and the family, everyone enjoyed it. Will be making it again next monday.

Ailani Zenker

The instructions were clear as daylight and the dish itself was easy to make, thanks for sharing

Izabelle Callanan

Obsessed with this new spaghetti recipe, I made it with some cheesy garlic bread and red wine for me and my hubby's anniversary. We enjoyed it very much.

Lindsay Caracoza

The dish tasted better than any restaurant could serve, I am very proud of myself. Going to be making a lot from this website from now on.

Abbie Stinchfield

This and the Mushroom Stroganoff are my favourites, I bookmarked both of these recipes.

Sally Bridewell

I've added sundried tomatoes to mine with a lot of extra parmesan cheese and some sliced mozzarella cheese. I recommend you do the same if you want your meal to be more filling.

Sofie Schutzenhofer

I like the recipe but instead of cherry tomatoes I've used sundried tomatos, it tasted fantastic. Thanks :)

Pyper Albakri

I am lactose intolerant so I had to replace the yogurt with a lactose free one, it did not impact the flavor at all and was delicious.

Kaleigh Lemert

I like Harissa spaghetti but not as much as I enjoyed Filipino spaghetti, I found it to be more flavorful.

Yazmin Masinter

I can not believe how little time went into the preparation of the spaghetti, I added a lot more parmesan cheese because I am a big cheese fanatic.

Alisa Palzer

Wish I would have known about this recipe sooner, I would've been making it every week, thanks so much!

Capri Gribbon

Instead of spaghetti I've used penne pasta, other then that I followed the guides step by step and it turned out amazing.

Ireland Kernan

There wasnt enough sauce in the spaghetti so I added more, would recommend doing the same for those who dont want their pasta to turn out dry.

Macey Babani

I decided not to add lemon to mine because I am not a fan of zesty flavours but it was still quite delicious.

Joelle Zanis

Great recipe, thanks so much. Gonna make again.


Thank you! Approved!
