How to Make

Ingredients

8 ounces spaghetti pasta (try whole wheat for more fiber)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 pound lean ground beef (85/15)
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Tip: Use smaller pasta shapes like penne or shells for toddlers. They're easier for tiny fingers to pick up! Or change it up by using ground turkey instead of ground beef.

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta according to package and drain.
  2. Sauté onion and garlic in the olive oil until golden.
  3. Add ground meat and cook until no longer pink.
  4. Add the tomato sauce, tomatoes, oregano, and basil.
  5. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes; sauce will thicken slightly.
  6. Serve meat sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
