Why I Love This Recipe

Spaghetti is a reliable dish that you can trust. Make a quick dinner for you and your roommate.

Recipe Joke: My sister bet me 15$ that I couldn't build a car out of spaghetti.

You should have seen the look on her face as I drove pasta.

1 lb ground beef or 1 lb Italian sausage
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon dried onion
1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, plus
