Re: Spaghetti Recipe?

Well I don't really use a recipe, I just brown the meat with onion powder (I'd use minced onion but dh hates the texture) and italian herb blend, then dump in the tomato sauce and add more seasoning, crushed fresh garlic, maybe a little dried oregano and about a half tsp. of crushed fennel seed. Sometimes I'll add a half tsp of sugar or balsamic vinegar - but with certain brands of canned tomato sauce, like S&W Organic, it's already sweet enough. Hunt's & Contadina can take a pinch of added sugar though.

every now and then I'll saute a blend of chopped carrot and celery before I put the meat into the pan to brown, but usually I just want to get it done quickly so I skip that.

Re: Spaghetti Recipe?

i sautee my meat with garlic and onion. you could do fresh tomatoes and green peppers.

i use canned sauce and i always add brown sugar LOOL i like mine sweet.

boil the noodles.

you could do ground chicken or turkey or sausage for a kick versus ground beef. we love spaghetti here but dh isnt a big fan of it
Love is compromise. Its accepting that both of you are diffrent. And learning to love the uniqueness of each other. Its learning to love those things which drive you nuts, and accepting them and not trying to change someone to how you want them to be.

Re: Spaghetti Recipe?

There was a similar thread not too long ago. There were a few recipes in there that sounded awesome.

I brown meat with olive oil, onions, garlic and shredded or finely chopped carrots, then add a jarred sauce (I like a plain marinara). Then some red wine and let it simmer down. YUMMY!
I usually use whole wheat or multigrain pasta.
