10-Minute Spaghetti “Bolognese”

JORDAN’S 10-MINUTE SPAGHETTI “BOLOGNESE” (I put this in quotation marks because while “bolognese” refers to a meat-based sauce, real bolognese sauces use relatively little tomato…and this one uses Newman’s Own. The people of Bologna would probably not want to claim responsibility.)

What you need:

1/2 large onion, diced

3 minced garlic cloves

1 package lean ground beef (the leaner the better)

Garlic salt

Sea salt & fresh ground pepper

Olive oil

1 jar Prego tomato sauce (or whatever brand you prefer; I also like Newman’s Own)

1 package spaghetti

What you do:

1. Cook spaghetti in salted boiling water according to package instructions.

2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, cook the onion and garlic in about 2tbsp olive oil until onions are just about translucent.

3. Add ground meat to pan with a shake or two of garlic salt and stir constantly until meat is cooked through.

4. Add tomato sauce to pan and simmer until warmed through. Season w/ salt & pepper to taste.

5. Serve with a little parmesan cheese, if desired.

6. Make happy face, as pictured above.
