Photo source: Grandmother's Kitchen

An easy spaghetti meat sauce recipe that is quick to throw together and so delicious.

Ingredients

Serves 4-6
1 package whole wheat spaghetti (or linguini/fettucine/any pasta you have) - gluten free is great too.
Olive oil, to drizzle
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb lean ground beef
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp dried oregano (or 2 tbsp, fresh)
1 can tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan cheese (to garnish) - * Note - if you are cooking gluten free, use fresh parmesan and grate yourself.

Directions

Over medium heat (ideally in a heavy bottom pan), sauté garlic in olive oil for 4-5 minutes until softened.

Add ground beef and cook, stirring beef and garlic often.

Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil (since it is lean beef, it will not have much of its own juice).

When beef is almost cooked through, season with soy sauce & ketchup, mixing well into beef.

Stir in oregano and cook for another minute or two.

Add can of tomato sauce, mix and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In the meanwhile, boil a large pot of water.

When it comes to a boil, add package of pasta, letting boil for 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness.

Drain water from pasta, and then drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Spoon on sauce and garnish with parmesan cheese.

This meal freezes very well!
