Super Duper Spaghetti

Dinner | February 22, 2011 | By

About every three weeks, Pixie will turn to me and say “Mommy will you PLEASE make Mommy Spaghetti? PLEASE!” As if she’s a starved child who is fed sub-par food everyday of her life. So in my most dramatic four year old voice I respond with, “Oh Pixie! I would LOVE to make you spaghetti tonight.” So, I always have the items for my spaghetti on hand. Here we go!

Hubby’s note: Recurring theme…this meal is amazing! I LOVE this spaghetti and I don’t even like tomatoes. The only way it could get better is if she added some garlic…er…

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, minced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
2 cups red wine (one cup is for you…I got your back)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Cooked spaghetti noodles

Cook ground beef until no pink is showing. Drain fat. Add garlic and onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste and cook for about 6 minutes. You want most of the liquid to be absorbed. Then add one cup of the red wine and take a sip of your wine as well. I told you I had you covered! Add the oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Add the olive oil at the end and stir it in. Take a spoon and give it a taste. If it needs some more salt or pepper throw it in and serve!
