Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 14 ounces chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. In a large pot or skillet with tall sides, add onions, garlic, and ground beef; cook for 6-8 minutes, or until beef is cooked through; use a wooden spatula to break apart while cooking. Drain off fat.
  2. Add tomato paste, broth, water, oregano, basil, black pepper; whisk well to combine ingredients; bring to a boil.
  3. Add spaghetti, lightly pressing down so sauce comes over it. Lightly stir it every few seconds, so that spaghetti combines with sauce/meat. Reduce heat to low/medium and simmer for 17-20 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked through and sauce has thickened. Stir every 3-4 minutes while simmering.

  4. Serve immediately topped with fresh parmesan cheese.
