Spaghetti Supper

All three of my kids loved spaghetti, what kid dosen’t.
Especially my boys…
Spaghetti Supper was always a favorite in our house. Whenever my kids had friends over they would always ask “Can your mom make spaghetti for supper”?
You can spend all day cooking down tomatos and simmering…adding your herbs…but here is a simple great way to keep your kids and their friends happy! 

It’s really simple to make, the key is to add some extra’s and let it simmer for about 45- 50 min’s on the stove to get the flavor.

Spaghetti Supper
By The Gourmet Farm Girl

½ lb of lean hamburger (If you like it meaty… add 1 lb lean hamburger)
3 T. olive oil
1 1 lb. jar (23.5 oz) jar of quality Spaghetti sauce  ( I like Prego) it really is in there…
1  14.5  oz can crushed tomatoes
1 sm. onion
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 c. fresh mushrooms
1 t. dried basil
½ t. dried dill weed
1 t dried oregano

Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked pepper

Step One

Use a 4 qt pot and brown the meat in bottom, while the meat is browning add the chopped onions and garlic.

As the meat finishes cooking add the spices to it and let simmer for about 5 min.’s

While your meat is simmering get your pot of water boiling for your spaghetti noodles

Step Two

Add the spaghetti sauce, crushed tomatoes & mushrooms to the meat mixture and let simmer for on low heat for another 35-40 min.’s

Salt and pepper

Don’t forget to taste test…

Add your spaghetti to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions.

Drain spaghetti and let cool while your sauce finishes simmering, make sure you keep stirring it to avoid sticking and splattering.

Step Three

Pile it high on the plate and serve it up…              

Serves 6 
Double the recipe if you have a big group
Don’t forget the Cheese!

I like to use a combination of fresh grated parmesan, asiago & mozzarella cheeses and top it off with some fresh chopped Italian leaf parsley

Serve with toasted garlic bread and a fresh green salad


Oh…and maybe a nice bottle of Cabernet too…for the adults of course!

It’s about the LOVE!
