  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.

I wasnt sure how to add a correction on my posted recipe. I only add 1/2 tsp of salt(if that) to this recipe.So please do not add 1 1/2 tsp like the recipe says. Also...this is a cooking down process. Everytime i remove the lid to stir...aprrox every 5-10 min..i make sure there is enough liquid to continue cooking the noodles to "done" i just gradually add 1/2 cup water as needed everytime i stir until the noodles are comp[letely cooked. This is a very good recipe if done correctly:)



Ihave been making speedy spaghetti for 27 years. We love it. I break the spaghetti into 1" pieces. Also I use one large can tomatoes-chopped. add 2 cups grated cheese and one small can diced olives. The cheese-mix 3/4 into spaghetti mixture and the rest on top of mixture. add olives on top. sprinkle with oregano. delish



Excellent recipe! Extremely easy to make and very tasty.
