One-Pan Spaghetti

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • Try ground turkey or small cooked shrimp for the meat.
  • Try whole-wheat pasta to increase fiber.
  • Use cheddar cheese in place of parmesan.
  • Pour fat from cooked meat into a metal container. Let it cool, then dispose of it in a garbage can.

This recipe is great! Its quick, easy and tastes delicious. Plus, there's not a whole sink full of dishes left afterwards!

Tried this last night. Its a great no mess recipe!

Great recipe to add shredded carrots, spinach, bell peppers or whatever veggie I have in the frig.  Love this recipe, a big hit with children and adults!

 

So tasty -- the oregano and rosemary make this very savory.  Teenage chefs love how easy this is to make!

This is yummy and with just one pot clean up is easy!

If I make regular spaghetti for the family, I get no comments. If I make this recipe, I hear compliments!
