Spaghetti Ingredients Ingredients

Serves two people



Preheat oven to 350°F and turn on two stovetop burners, one to high and the other to a medium heat. Pull out a medium to large sized pot, a medium sized frying pan, a cookie sheet, and a strainer.


Step 1

Fill a large to medium sized pot half way up with cold water and place on the stovetop burner with high heat.  Next, take a medium to large sized frying pan, place it on the burner with medium heat, and put in the ground beef.

Step 2

While waiting for the ground beef to cook, begin to slice up the french bread, spread the garlic butter across it, and place it on the cookie sheet. Continue to move the ground beef around until all of the pink color is gone. By this time your water should have begun to boil. Once water is boiling, add the box of dried noodles to the pot. At this point, you should be putting the bread into your preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.


Step 3

Once the ground beef is cooked all of the way through, drain out the excess juices from the frying pan. After the juice has been drained, add the jar of tomato sauce to the frying pan and put it back on the stovetop, now turning the burner down to a low to medium heat. Allow the newly made meat sauce to sit at a low simmer while the noodles are boiling.


Step 4

Once the noodles have become limp and soft, transfer the noodles from the pot into a strainer and rinse the noodles off. Next flip the noodles around in the strainer until all of the excess water is gone. Finally spoon out the noodles from the strainer, add the meat sauce on top of the noodles, and enjoy your meal.
