Time saving and budget friendly recipe even my picky 4 year old enjoys! The sauce can also be simmered in a slow cooker.

Directions

  1. Cook and stir ground beef in large pot over high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, water, carrot, onion soup mix, granulated garlic, oregano, basil, and thyme. Bring to a boil. Turn sauce down to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. When sauce has finished cooking, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta stirring occasionally, until cooked but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  3. Serve Bolognese sauce over hot spaghetti.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Finally the spaghetti recipe I've been looking for! I've been searching for a simple recipe that tastes great and isn't from a jar. My family loved it! This will be a regular dish at my house!

Way too much meat, this recipe equals 1/2 lb of meat per person! I cooked as instructed but added 8oz tomato sauce. One box of noodles wasn't enough for the sauce so I saved half of the sauce for later, and it was still too much meat. Next time I'd use 1/2 lb meat. Actually, I don't plan on making this again.

This was so fast and easy. I also enjoyed the flavor. 2 cups of water evaporates quickly so I had to add more water (1/2 cup at a time) twice. Maybe I should have kept a lid on it, but it didn't say to do that. I will try that next time. My advise is to watch it closly, and make sure it's on a low simmer or you'll be using a brillo pad on the bottom of your pot. I really liked this dish, thanks
