“Came from a stash of cut out recipes from everywhere...I'm sure you know what I mean. I no longer know what magazine it was in, but it's still great. This freezes well too.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2.5 (15 ounce) cans water, about 4 3/4 cups
  • 1.5 (1 1/4 ounce) packages taco seasoning mix, if you want it spicier use 2 pkgs
  • 2 tablespoons instant minced onion
  • 8 ounces spaghetti, uncooked
  • 2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, about 1/2 cup


  1. In a dutch oven or 12" skillet, brown ground meat. Add salt, tomato sauce, water, taco mix & onion.
  2. Bring to a boil, add spaghetti.
  3. Simmer covered for 25 to 30 minutes or until spaghetti is tender, stirring frequently.
  4. Sprinkle with cheese & serve. (Note: I usually let everyone sprinkle their own cheese. This way everyone gets some cheese.).
