A quick spaghetti recipe that cooks in 30-40 minutes and feeds a crowd. Easy recipes like this are perfect for busy weeknights!
  • 1 lb of beef (we use grass fed from a bull we purchased a few months back)
  • 2 lbs of spaghetti noodles
  • 3 jars of spaghetti sauce (I use Trader Joe's Traditional Marinara Sauce, it's $1.29 a jar)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 t salt
  • cracked pepper, to taste
  • ¼ c of shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Fill a large pot with water that can hold 2 lbs of spaghetti noodles. Put the pot over a high heat on the stove so it can begin to boil about the time your meat is almost done.
  2. In a skillet, over medium heat, add 2 T olive oil, garlic, your beef and salt and pepper.
  3. Crumble the beef with a large cooking spoon, mixing it well with the other ingredients in the skillet and evenly distributing it over the heat. Continue cooking until it is well done and browned.
  4. Once the ground beef is brown, add your spaghetti sauces. I am in love with this Trader Joe's Traditional Marinara Sauce. They are 18 oz jars and only $1.29. The flavor is amazing! I use 3 jars. Slowly add each jar and combine well with the meat.
  5. Once all the sauces are added, move the heat to low and let it simmer.
  6. About this time your water for the noodles will be boiling. Add the noodles to the boiling water. Cook them for 9 minutes and then drain.
  7. Now it is time to plate it up. Place a large pile of noodles on each plate and top with two hearty scoops of the meaty sauce.
  8. This is key, top with a generous amount of shredded Parmesan cheese. I love Trader Joe's version. The flavor is rich and fresh. It will begin to melt immediately.
  9. Serve it with some cheesy bread and dinner (or lunch) is done.
