I'm not sure if I have ever posted this recipe - if I have, I can't find it....I made it a couple of weeks ago and was reminded of how good and simple it is. And even Bubbie, who groaned that we were having spaghetti, ate a big plate of it!One Pot Spaghetti
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
29 oz chicken or veggie broth
1 can tomato paste
1/2 t. oregano
salt and pepper to your taste
7 oz dry spaghetti, broken up a little
Cook the beef in about a tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat until it's about halfway browned. Add the chopped onion and cook about 3 or 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Schooch the beef over to the side of the pan to create a "hot spot". Add the tomato paste to the hot spot and cook a couple of minutes, then stir all well. Add broth, oregano, and salt and pepper and bring it to a boil. Add uncooked spaghetti, stir, reduce heat and cover. Cook on low for about 15 minutes. Uncover and top with grated cheese, if desired, and let sit a few minutes.
I set a cannister of grated parmesan out for everyone instead of topping it with cheese in the pan - you can do it either way. I also seasoned up some peas with a little butter, salt, pepper, and a smidge of bacon fat while the sketti was cooking. An easy dinner, and the leftovers are great the next day, too!
