Easy Spaghetti and Sauce Recipe
PREP: 30 minutes
COOK: 30 minutes
READY IN: 1 hour
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onions
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 can tomato juice (46 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 to 2 lbs. of vermicelli pasta (or thin spaghetti)
  • grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Directions
  • Brown the ground beef in a large frying pan. Add the onions to the ground beef as it is cooking; salt and pepper to taste. Drain the grease but leave the meat in the pan that it is browned in.
  • Pour the tomato soup into the pan with the ground beef and then add the tomato juice. If all the juice doesn't fit, set it aside to add later. Stir until the soup and juice are well mixed.
  • Bring the mixture to a full boil and then turn down to a slow boil (a little more than a simmer). Add the sugar and butter; stir to distribute evenly.
  • Continue to cook the sauce. If there was tomato juice left in the can, add this juice as the sauce boils down. Continue to add the juice until you have added the entire can. The sauce is done when you have added all the juice and allowed it to boil slowly for at least 5 minutes. The longer it cooks the thicker it will become.
  • Cook the spaghetti while the spaghetti sauce is boiling. When the spaghetti is done the sauce should be ready. Drain the spaghetti but do not rinse. Serve immediately while the spaghetti is hot. If the spaghetti sets for a while it will begin to stick together. If this happens, just rinse it with hot water to loosen it up again.
  • We just have everyone fill their plates with spaghetti and add the amount of sauce they desire. We place the Parmesan cheese on the table for the ones who want to add it. The spaghetti and sauce are great served with garlic toast.

Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, unsliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a sheet of heavy-duty foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Slice bread into 1 1/2 inch slices, cutting to, but not through to the bottom of the loaf.

Slice bread again into 1 1/2 inch slices in opposite direction in the same manner, forming bread-sticks. Place loaf on prepared foil.

In small saucepan, melt butter over low heat, stir in basil and garlic.

Gently separate the bread with your fingers, then spoon the butter mixture in all of the seams, making sure it is evenly distributed among the whole loaf. Wrap the loaf up in the foil and place on a baking stone or directly on the oven rack and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.

Open the foil and sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the bread. There will be a lot of cheese, so try to push down as much as you can in between all of the crevices in the bread. Leave the foil open and return it to the oven. Bake until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling and starting to brown on top, about 15 minutes.

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Dig in!
