One Pot Pantry Pasta with Ground Beef

One-Pot Pantry Pasta with Ground Beef is the dish to make when you are hungry, or you want pasta, or when you don't know what to do about dinner, yet again, because it is delicious!

Who wants and needs a simple to make, one-pot dinner that the whole family will love? I should think everyone, that's who! Fortunately, the absolute only preplanning necessary for this dish is remembering to thaw the ground beef, and that is only if you keep it in the freezer! See, this recipe really is a keeper...

One-Pot Pantry Pasta with Ground Beef is completely adaptable. If you like your Ragu on the sweeter side, that's OK. If you love garlic, or possibly not at all (!), that's OK too. If you like more pasta than sauce, even that's OK. Because measuring suggestions have been offered to accommodate everyone with this recipe. All you have to do is stir it up, and serve. Oh and by the way, don't forget the Parmesan!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • lean ground beef
  • spaghetti 
  • onion
  • garlic
  • canned tomatoes
  • beef broth
  • salt & pepper
  • oregano
  • sugar
  • olive oil
You will also need the following:
  • large pan with lid
  • stirring spoon
Now we are ready to begin!

One-Pot Pantry Pasta with Ground Beef, one pan and dinner is ready!
