Fast and easy- my kind of weeknight recipe. You can easily add meat to this- just cook it up in the Dutch oven before adding the pasta and liquids. I find it's tasty without meat- but sometimes brown up some hamburger or meatballs before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Spaghetti was mealie and starchy. I added meatballs. I won't cook it this way again.

I haven't even had a chance to cook this yet, but this looks awesome! Although I LOVE spaghetti, I hate the cleanup afterwards, and the attempt to get everything cooking/warm at the same time! A pot for noodles (waiting for what seems like HOURS to get the water to boil), a pan to brown the meat, and then a strainer for the noodles, a noodle spoon to serve the noodles, and a ladle for the sauce... and then to top it all off by the time I'm done serving noodles for all 5 of us, what's left in the strainer gets hard as it dries out! I love one pot wonders, and if this method works, it will surely become the only way that I prepare spaghetti from now on!
