Instead of reaching for jarred pasta sauce when you're serving spaghetti for dinner, give this homemade sauce a try. After it cooks for 30 minutes, toss in the noodles and the one pot meal will be complete once the noodles are tender. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook first 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain well. Return beef mixture to pan. Stir in tomato sauce and next 8 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 30 minutes.

Step 2

Add pasta; cover and simmer, stirring often, 20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Serve with cheese, and garnish, if desired.
