Sheila's Spaghetti with Meat Recipe



When you think about spaghetti, you know that it is a meal that is great for feeding a bunch of people. Spaghetti is cheap and easy to make for a meal where you have lots of guests.  When I think of spaghetti I always think of the book Strega Nona. I think of Strega Nona and Big Anthony because I either make way too much or not enough.  Usually, it is way too much. Luckily, Noah loves spaghetti and he will gobble it up, like it’s no one’s business. There are different ways to make it of course. Most of the time I just make it with just sauce poured on and parmesan cheese. I will call that traditional spaghetti, but sometimes I want something more than just the sauce.  Usually when I can find hamburger on sale, I will make this recipe. It is great for serving a group because it is so filling and good. It is also really easy to make.

Sheila’s Meat Spaghetti Recipe

One box spaghetti
One Can Spaghetti Sauce whatever flavor you would like. I use Hunts
One pound hamburger
One small onion
A few garlic cloves

Cook Spaghetti per the box directions in a big pot, while it is cooking, start browning the hamburger in a skillet;  chop up onion and garlic. When the hamburger is almost done add the onion and garlic and cook through.  Drain the hamburger mixture.  Drain the spaghetti and return to the pot. Add the sauce and hamburger mixture and combine and  Enjoy!

  1. I've made spaghetti sauce using jar/can sauce as my base before. Especially adding meatballs. :)

  4. My family loves spaghetti too - they never complain when I make it, which is good because it is a frequent go to dish when I'm lacking time and or ingredients for other things!

  17. That's about how I do ours. Although I add mushrooms instead of onions and garlic (both make me sick). I don't have time to make anything more complicated anyways!
