Imagine my surprise when Melissa told me THIS MORNING that it was time for another recipe!!! So, we started thinking what sounded good to us, and we both agreed that spaghetti, just plain, old classic spaghetti, would be great! So, after work and swimming, off I went to the grocery store to get things to do some cookin’!
I used two jars of sauce and the whole box of spaghetti to be sure we would have leftovers (and believe me, we do!). I also timed it today to see how long it took from start to finish, and it was one hour (and I even cooked some chicken breasts for Janelle at the same time!) Here’s what I did…
*1/2 pound ground beef, cooked (I browned up a whole pound and put the other half in the freezer for chili some night)
*2 jars of Ragu sauce. It was on sale for only $1/jar!
*1 can of tomatoes, drained
*1 box of Smart Taste thin spaghetti (I use that because it tastes like regular spaghetti, but is healthier)
Make the spaghetti how you like it, add a salad (I just got one from the salad bar at the grocery store), green beans and some grapes for a nice easy meal! We had turtle Cookies from the store bakery for dessert. You could have Italian bread with it, but I kind of have a weird carb phobia about spaghetti and bread all at once!
Enjoy! You better, because there will be plenty of leftovers 🙂
