Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb ground beef (you can use lean)
2 medium onions, chopped (1 cup)
1 can whole tomatoes (28 oz)
1/2 cup water
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 4 oz can mushrooms (optional)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. chili powder
7 oz (1/2 a small bag) of uncooked spaghetti
1 cup shredded cheese, cheddar or mozzarella
1 4 oz can mushrooms, drained (optional)
1 cup bell pepper (optional)


In a large skillet cook and stir your hamburger and onions until hamburger is light brown; drain. Stir in tomatoes (with liquid), water, tomato sauce, salt, sugar, chili powder, mushrooms, bell peppers and spaghetti; break up tomatoes with fork.

Heat to boiling and then reduce heat. Cover and simmer, stir occasionally, until spaghetti is tender, about 30 minutes. You might need to add a little extra water. Sprinkle the top with cheese. Cover and heat until cheese is melted.

To make lower in fat use fat-free cheese and lean ground beef.
