  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with the onion until all pink is gone; drain.
  2. Stir in tomato sauce, water, salt, parsley, basil and pepper; mix well. Heat until sauce boils. Break spaghetti in half and drop into sauce a little at a time. Cover and turn to low.
  3. Cook until spaghetti is tender, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking to pan and from noodles sticking together. Add water, 1/2 to 1 cup, if it starts to dry out and noodles are not cooked.

This reminds me of my mom's spaghetti. The only thing I did was add a chopped bell pepper and some garlic (minced when I have it, powder when I don't). I pair it with a salad and garlic toast f...

Pretty good, I added some other spices to liven up the sauce. I found it WAY too salty though. I think I will stick to my other recipe, thanks anyway.
