Hearty, Homey Recipie - Semi-Homemade Spaghetti

We use to eat all kinds of pasta when we first moved in together back in 2003. We would buy whatever pasta was on sale. Bath then I also didn't use coupons like I do today. I would buy the cheap $0.25 pasta tiny little bags and buy like 4 of them and we'd eat all the bags in one night. We also ate lots of those packaged noodles (ramen). Now I can't stomach them. One day I was watching a tv show and they were talking about whole wheat foods vs regular foods with enriched wheat flour. Ever since then we have switched over to eating only Ronzoni Healthy Harvest pastas. They are so good. So now everytime we have pasta we are eating the healthiest pasta out there!

Now I'm going to share with you the recipe that I make 90% of the time we have spaghetti.

What you'll need:
1lbs lean ground beef
1/4 cup sliced or diced onions
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1 tbls EVOO (extra virgin olive oil, organic)
1 can of Del Monte Spaghetti sauce, 26.5 oz
1/2 box of Ronzoni Whole Wheat (or 7 Grain)
1 loaf of french bread
Spices; garlic, salt and pepper

  1. Brown ground beef. As the meat browns dice and slice the the veggies. Drain and rinse. Yes, we even rinse our lean meat because we try to get out as much fat as possible.
  2. After you rinse your meat put it aside for a while and add the EVVO and let it heat up for a while and add your veggies. Cook till the onions are semi transparent. At this point you can either remove the veggies to use as a topper or mix it in with the beef. Add a bit of the spices.
  3. Start the pasta water to boil. I salt the water a bit.
  4. Open the can of spaghetti sauce and stir until it comes to a boil and then simmer until your you are ready to serve. I boil the pasta for exactly 13 minutes. Drain the pasta and you can either mix in with the sauce or place it in a bowl. I don't like to put it back in the pot because some can burn and stick to the bottom and continue cooking.
  5. Slice the french bread and either warm in the oven for 5-8 minutes or toast on a griddle. I do not use butter, but like to mix spices with olive oil and brush it on before I toast it.
  6. Serve & Enjoy!
