Spaghetti with Quick Meat Sauce

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (90 votes)

Instead of opening a jar of sauce, try this easy spaghetti with meat sauce on a weeknight. Serve with steamed broccoli and garlic bread. The recipe makes enough for 8 servings. If you’re serving only four for dinner, cook 8 ounces of spaghetti and freeze the leftover sauce.

Great Taste & Super Simple

My husband wasn't sure about eating the carrots and celery in this recipe, but the sauce turned out great! We always make our own pasta sauce because the pre-made sauces have too much sodium and not enough taste. So this was a nice change from our usual pasta sauce we make. It was nice to add some other veggies in the sauce. We will make this recipe again soon.

I made this meat sauce following the recipe to the letter and it was delicious, but seemed to be lacking a little something. The second time I made it, I substituted ground bison for the beef, added another stalk of celery and some 'seasoning peppers' (a small, mildly piquant pepper grown in the Caribbean), chopped up a box of shitake mushrooms and added those at the last minute with the parsley. A little extra kosher salt and some fresh ground black pepper -- and the meat sauce sang to my taste buds! I would like to know what the nutritional results of these changes were, but this is the way I will make it from now on.

I never make my own pasta sauce (canned is so easy) but this was a nice change from "the usual" and still very easy. Loved the flavor. Will definitely make again.
