All-In-One Spaghetti

Friday, August 21, 2009

SO good and SO easy! I love that this really only uses one pot - easy clean up. I was skeptical about the sauce with tomato juice and chili powder, but it turned out great. The sauce had the perfect consistency - not too runny like a lot of sauces. It makes a ton of spaghetti. I plan on eating the leftovers while Tadd is out of town.

This is our new favorite spaghetti recipe. We will be having this again soon.

All-In-One Spaghetti
serves 6-8
(Printable Recipe)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 3 cups tomato juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp chili powder (I leave this out sometimes)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1 (7-ounce) package spaghetti, uncooked
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Cook first 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return beef mixture to pan. Stir in tomato sauce and next 8 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 30 minutes.

Add pasta; cover and simmer, stirring often, 20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Serve with cheese, and garnish, if desired.

Pin It!

  1. You know- you just can't have too many good spaghetti recipes- I'll have to try this one!

  2. We loved this sauce! I cooked the noodles separately and gave the sauce a longer simmer time to thicken it. Thank you for another great recipe!
