My Good Spaghetti

My Good Spaghetti created by Seasoned Cook

DELICIOUS!! My family loves spaghetti. I have perfected my own recipe by preparing it over a hundred times to get the "just right" taste. We like a lot of sauce, therefore, I only cook 8 ounces of noodles. We like the thin spaghetti noodles. I had to write the recipe down because my granddaughter and her son love it. For this recipe I purchase the leanest ground beef which is 93 percent meat and 7 percent fat. We always have a large piece of crusty buttered garlic bread with our spaghetti.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large saucepan, heat vegetable oil and saute onions for 2 minutes. Lift out into a small dish and set aside. (For the garlic lovers, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic may be added to cook along with onions.).
  • Brown ground beef and drain. Place onions and ground beef back into saucepan.
  • Add spaghetti sauce - (I use Bertolli's Tomato and Basil sauce. I rinse out the jar with the 1/2 cup of water and pour into saucepan.) Continue to add: tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, sugar, salt and black pepper.
  • Place lid on saucepan and cook on low heat for 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, cook noodles according to instructions on box. (I add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to water to prevent noodles from sticking together and add salt to water.) Cook only to a la dente stage and drain.
  • Serve noodles on plate with sauce on top. Serve with buttered garlic bread.
  • ENJOY!

    WOW!! Tried this on a whim tonight - I used red wine instead of water as suggested by another poster, forgot the Italian seasoning (didn't need it, I think!) and realized at last minute I had tomato SAUCE instead of paste and added mushrooms. YUM - I've already had some leftovers tonight at 11:00 p.m. no less and can't wait to take some for lunch.

    I have made this a half dozen times now, and it has become my favorite spaghetti sauce. Easy, and great tasting. The only thing I changed was I used a 32 oz jar of Classico brand from Costco instead of a 26 oz jar.

    This was a very easy to make and delicious recipe. I followed it as written except I added some red pepper flakes because we love our spaghetti with a "kick". Thanks so much Seasoned Cook for a recipe I will be making often.

    This is exactly the same way I make my spaghetti, except for one exception I have never used worcestershire sauce. Ohh... and I add wine to rinse out the jar, instead of water. (An excuse for me to have a nip...lol) When making it I realised I had run out of tomato paste, so I had to subsitute for a tomato powder. I made the sauce and kept the worcestershire sauce out until the end... on purpose, I wanted to taste if there was a difference. It did make a difference, it did add a little more flavour to the sauce, it seemed to take a little sweetness away........,and I really liked the difference as did the family. This is a great recipe, and from now on I will be adding the secret ingredient ....worcestershire sauce. ;-) Thanks for a fantastic improve on my usual way of making the recipe Seasoned Cook. N.B. I served this with Seasoned Cooks awesome Recipe #308553
