Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large pot, heat the oil and saute the onion until translucent.
  • Add the meat and herbs and cook slowly, breaking up the lumps of meat with a spoon, until the meat is brown and cooked through.
  • If you feel like it, drain off the fat.
  • Add the spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, and salt and pepper to taste, and cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes.
  • Now add the pasta and the 2 cups of water and bring to a boil, stirring. Then lower the heat, cover the pot, and simmer for half an hour.
  • (Stir frequently to make sure pasta doesn't scorch on the bottom.)
  • If the mixture looks too dry, add up to half a cup of water.
  • After half an hour, the pasta will be cooked through and the sauce thickened. Give it a final stir and serve with cheese.

    I used the method for this recipe and used Italian turkey sausages, and added in a small diced zucchini and two cloves of garlic. Since I was using a full pound of Farfelle, I used a 21 oz (650ml) jar of tomato basil sauce and a 16 oz can of diced tomatoes with the juice. I did use the 2 cups of water, and added a little bit more in the middle of cooking because it looked really thick. The pasta was done in about 25 minutes.
    It's nice and thick, and has the taste and consistency of a ragu. Part of that is probably from all the starch that gets cooked into the sauce. The kids love it too, so a huge thumbs up! more in the IMI link below, made it 07/07/16

    This is going to be great to heat up for my work lunches next week. I loved the one pot to wash! I did choose to drain my ground beef. More in IMI 7/4/16
