How To Make One-Pot Spaghetti and Meat Sauce (Stove-Top)
This delicious spaghetti and meat sauce recipe is made with beef, fresh tomatoes, pepper, and basil — all cooked in one pot! Perfect for lazy Sundays, aye?
Heat a large heavy pot or Dutch oven over high heat; If your pot is not heavy, the sauce may burn.
When hot, add the beef and salt and cook, breaking up for about 3 minutes.
Add the onions and garlic. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until softened.
Add the crushed tomatoes, black pepper, water, and basil and stir. Add the spaghetti, making sure the liquid covers everything without stirring.
Cover and cook to medium-low heat (do not open) for about 17 to 20 minutes until the water is absorbed and the pasta is cooked.
Serve topped with grated cheese if desired.
