Fast Beef Spaghetti

    40 minutes

    This pasta is prepared slightly differently - the spaghetti is actually cooked in the sauce. Try it - it's great!

    Serves: 4 

    • 250g beef mince
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 500g tomato pasta sauce
    • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) water
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
    • 1/2 pinch dried basil
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 125g uncooked spaghetti

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a large frypan over medium heat, brown the beef mince with the onion until all pink is gone; drain.
    2. Stir in tomato pasta sauce, water, salt, parsley, basil and pepper; mix well. Heat until sauce boils. Break spaghetti in half and drop into sauce a little at a time. Cover and turn to low.
    3. Cook until spaghetti is tender, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep pasta from sticking to pan and together. Add water, 1/2 to 1 cup, if it starts to dry out and pasta is not cooked.

    I wasnt sure how to add a correction on my posted recipe. I only add 1/2 tsp of salt(if that) to this recipe.So please do not add 1 1/2 tsp like the recipe says. Also...this is a cooking down process. Everytime i remove the lid to stir...aprrox every 5-10 min..i make sure there is enough liquid to continue cooking the noodles to "done" i just gradually add 1/2 cup water as needed everytime i stir until the noodles are comp[letely cooked. This is a very good recipe if done correctly  -  12 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Ihave been making speedy spaghetti for 27 years. We love it. I break the spaghetti into 1" pieces. Also I use one large can tomatoes-chopped. add 2 cups grated cheese and one small can diced olives. The cheese-mix 3/4 into spaghetti mixture and the rest on top of mixture. add olives on top. sprinkle with oregano. delish  -  21 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
