Celebrating National Spaghetti Day
I am always looking for easy and satisfying dishes to serve to my family. One dish that is made almost once a week at our house is Spaghetti! I admit, years ago I used the sauce that came in a jar until I made this sauce for the first time. Since that day,I have not bought a jar of that spaghetti sauce stuff in over 15 years! I have made this recipe meatless, with ground meat, meatballs, and have used it for numerous casserole dishes as a marinara sauce. I love the fresh flavor and bits of tomato. Canned or frozen tomatoes from your garden would make this recipe even more delightful! I am sure your family will love it too! I usually round out this meal with whole wheat spaghetti pasta, a fresh green salad and slices of whole wheat garlic toast.
1 pound of ground beef
3-4 cloves of minced garlic
1 large onion diced
Brown these three ingredients together and then add the following.
1 teaspoon dried basil
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons sugar
1- 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 4 oz can of tomato paste
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Simmer 10-15 minutes or until sauce is hot and bubbly. Serve over whole wheat spaghetti or your favorite pasta shape.
