Spaghetti.  So easy to make, yet so delicious (who doesn’t love carbs??).  In my house, spaghetti is one of those go-to dinners when you are too lazy to think of anything creative to make.  And sure, store-bought spaghetti sauce is convenient and easy but it is definitely not always the best.  This is the recipe for the spaghetti sauce that my mom’s side of the family has been making forever! The good thing is that you can’t really screw it up and can always adjust spices and other flavors to mix it up a little bit 🙂

Spaghetti Sauce

What you’ll need:

1 lb. spaghetti (or any other pasta of your choice)
1 lb. ground beef
1 tb. minced garlic
1/2-1 medium onion, diced
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes (My mom cans tomatoes herself, so I just use that.. how convenient!)
1 small can tomato paste
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
dried basil, dried oregano, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper (to taste)What to do:
1. Cook pasta according to package directions, strain.
2. Brown hamburger, add onion and garlic near end.
3. Add spices to taste.
4. Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce; simmer, stirring occasionally.
