Spaghetti with Quick Meat Sauce

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.

I substituted some pork sausage for some of the ground beef. and a bell pepper for the carrots. Also added some of my spices and a little red pepper to jazz it up a little.
Will do this one again.

DELICIOUS!

This meal is delicious! I made the sauce exactly as the recipe calls for except I used salt-free Mrs. Dash table blend instead of salt to cut back on sodium. I used Hunt's no salt added tomatoes. I picked the perfect wheat pasta - Healthy Harvest. It was quick and easy to make, perfect for a weeknight. And with a salad, perfect for company!

Healthier than a jar, health wheat pasta, easy to make

Turned it into chili by

Turned it into chili by adding chicken stock, red kidney beans, frozen corn, 2 organic Idaho potatoes and 2 more cans of diced tomatoes. Everyone raved. Some still ate it over spaghetti noodles. Will certainly make again with this variation.

make it even more healthy!

Every time I use ground beef to cook I always cook it first and then drain the fat out of it (even though I buy 93% lean)! I did that with the recipe as well and it was just as good! I simmered it a little longer towards the end so the flavors had more time to mix! Yummy!
