Speedy Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Author: Canadian Living

Fat Trimmer: In an older version, 1 lb (500 g) regular ground beef would have been browned in oil, and the fat would probably not have been drained off. But if you use a good nonstick pan and lean ground beef and place the meat in the pan before heating, there is no need for oil.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 can tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 12 oz spaghetti

Method

In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion, garlic, oregano and basil, breaking up meat with back of spoon and stirring often, for about 8 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and onion is softened. Skim off any fat.

Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, blend tomatoes with juices until almost smooth; add to skillet along with sugar. Simmer, uncovered and stirring often, for about 20 minutes or until desired thickness. Add salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm; drain. Serve topped with sauce.
