Quick and easy. Green pepper, onion and red pepper flakes are optional. I usually skip the bell pepper and onion and add a 7 oz can of drained mushroom pieces instead.
- Brown meat with garlic, green pepper and onion. Do not drain.
- Stir in water, spaghetti sauce and hot pepper flakes.
- Bring to a boil.
- Stir in spaghetti.
- Boil 15 min., stirring occasionally.
- Serve with Parmesan cheese.
Here is my alt:
Use 2 1/2 cups beef stock (only 15 cals per cup) - Trader Joes.
When putting all the liquids together, use a 24 oz can of raghu in the can traditional then and a drained 14 oz can of diced tomato w/mild green chiles.
Once up to a boil, put it on low and cover for 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally to make sure your noodles are noodled.
Then, if you've had a glass of red, add a splash from the bottle.
Viola! Perfection in one pan.
Cheers and a big thanks to Lisa1 from the dad that likes to cook, especially if its one dish!
This is very similar to a recipe I had, in early marriage days! I just wasn't feeling the idea of boiling noodles, and making sauce (separate), so I looked up your recipe. I used beef, didn't add green peppers, onions, or mushrooms (don't care for any of those, in my sauce); but, I did double up on garlic and red pepper flakes, and I used 1 c. veggie stock and 1 c. water, in place of all the water. I loved the soupy spaghetti, with all the pasta well-covered! Thanks!
Good basic recipe. I used 1/2 lb chopped tempeh and 4 oz mushrooms instead of the turkey, and 1/2 glass white wine, a 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and a couple of tbsp of fresh basil and rosemary instead of the sauce. Garnished w/ chopped olives.
