Spaghetti simmer directly in a delicious beef and tomato sauce with seasonings.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/2 pinch dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 ounces uncooked spaghetti
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the onion until all pink is gone; drain.
Stir in tomato sauce, water, salt, parsley, basil and pepper; mix well. Heat until sauce boils. Break spaghetti in half and drop into sauce a little at a time. Cover and turn to low.
Cook until spaghetti is tender, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking to pan and from noodles sticking together. Add water, 1/2 to 1 cup, if it starts to dry out and noodles are not cooked.
