This is one of my favourite recipes to make at home because it is a fast and easy meal to prepare and it tastes really good. Comfort food at its best.

Easy And Delicious Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef Recipe

Ingredients:

* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1 green bell pepper, diced
* 1 yellow onion diced
* 3-4 cloves garlic minced
* 1 large can diced tomatoes (28 oz , fire roasted even better)
* 1 small can tomato sauce (14 oz)
* 1 smal can tomato paste (6 oz)
* ¼ teaspoon chilli pepper flakes (optional)
* 1 tablespoon dried oregano
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1 tablespoon dried basil
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

1. Brown the beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until just cooked brown. Drain off the excess fat.

2. Add the onions, garlic and pepper and saute with the meat until the onions are soft and translucent.

3. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir well and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat to simmer and cook for around 30 minutes.

Cook your past as directed but follow these important steps:

1. Once the pasta is done DO NOT DRAIN. Take a cup of the pasta water and mix it into the pasta sauce.

2. Take a cup of cold water and put it into the pasta pot (this will stop any remaining cooking).

3. Serve the pasta using tongs to pull up the noodles form the pot of water and hold them to drip dry before plating.

Liberally scoop on some of the pasta sauce and then top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

    Very similar to mine, I do add marjoram and Italian herbs too as well. Was is the secret to putting some of the pasta water into the sauce?

      The salty, starchy water not only adds flavor but helps glue the pasta and sauce together; it will also help thicken the sauce.

    This looks great. I am always on the look out for simple and easy ragu recipes (that do not include pork); I can see I can alter and adapt this one with more veggies (like diced celery and onions). Thanks!

    I’ve been doing a meat sauce for a long time but I didn’t add the fire roasted tomatoes or sugar or the pasta water but I want to give it a try.

    I love spaghetti for dinner – easy, quick, and everyone likes it! I have never tried saving the pasta water and adding to the sauce – I’m gonna try that next time! Thank you!
