All-In-One Spaghetti Recipe


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. 


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 3 cups tomato juice

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • Dash of pepper

  • 1 (7-ounce) package spaghetti, uncooked

  • Grated Parmesan cheese

  • Garnish: fresh Italian parsley sprigs


  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.

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