Spaghetti with Tomato Meat Sauce

Everyone should have a go-to meat sauce to go with spaghetti in their recipe box. If you don't here is one to try.

Serves 4

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 28 fl oz can plum tomatoes
4 tablespoons tomato paste
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh parmesan cheese, grated
Red pepper flakes (optional)


Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy, medium-sized saucepan. Add onions and cook five minutes, add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add beef, turn up heat and stir-fry until no longer pink. Add basil and oregano and stir one minute more. Stir in tomatoes and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare spaghetti noodles as per package directions. When cooked, drain and add to plates. Top with meat sauce.

Serve and pass the parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, if using.
