We always seem to be in a time crunch, so I need quick, simple and easy recipes.  This easy homemade spaghetti recipe is perfect.

Spaghetti is something I grew up making as a kid.  I have taken the recipe my mom made, and tweaked it (as I always do), to meet our families liking.

One thing we do, to make it quick is we use jar sauce.  It’s done it’s ready and we can add flavors that we like to fit our tastes.  Adding spices to your sauce is a perfect way to add what you may not be able to find in your jar sauce.

We also love to eat spaghetti with garlic bread and I’ve got a garlic butter spread that is perfect to make homemade garlic bread too.  We’ve found we enjoy homemade garlic bread with our homemade spaghetti.

cooked ground beef

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or more to taste)
1/2 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 24-28 oz can/jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1/2 pound cooked pasta spaghetti

meat with spices


In a large pan, brown the ground beef on medium heat until it is cooked and chopped into small pieces.

While the ground beef is cooking, you should cook your pasta as well.

Add your spaghetti sauce, Italian seasoning and minced onion and stir.

Allow the spaghetti and beef sauce to simmer until the spaghetti is cooked.  Drain and all the spaghetti.
