Spaghetti with Quick Meat Sauce

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (91 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.

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!

Delicious, Easy, and Extra Veggies!

I love this recipe! I've been using this one for a few months now and people keep telling me how good it is. I've put in onions instead of the celery if I don't have celery on hand and it works just as well. First of all the addition of the veggies is healthier, you eat a little more of them and a little less meat. Secondly, it makes it cheaper too because you can use less meat to feed more people!
It's very easy to make and very tasty... if you simmer it for longer the taste becomes a bit richer. Or if you're in a hurry or you like a lighter flavored sauce, you can just stop when the recipe says. You can add in anything you like, obviously, but this is a really good basic recipe! Highly recommended!

easy, cheap and healthy

sauce was amazing, i need to be more picky with my pasta though

we loved how meaty the sauce was and how bright and colorful the food was however don't be stingy when you buy your wheat pasta, the flavor of the pasta was overpowering the sauce and brought down the fun.

sauce was amazing, tasty and surprisingly good

So easy! So flavorful!

My better half LOVES meat sauce, but canned meat sauce never does the trick. So I came across this recipe and it was very delicious. Perfect for a weeknight meal when there's not a lot of time.
