Spaghetti and Beef

As a mom of two I find it necessary to create meals that are easy to prepare, yet satisfying to both kids and adults alike. I came up with this recipe after being inspired by a pasta lunch I purchased from the deli at one of our local supermarkets.


  • 16 oz box spaghetti
  • 2 – 3 lbs ground beef
  • 3 cups good pasta sauce
  • 1 can (14 oz) whole kernel corn
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions (ensure that water is adequately salted before adding spaghetti).
  2. Season ground beef (salt, black pepper, onion and garlic powders) and cook thoroughly in a non-stick or lightly greased skillet. I must emphasize that the meat must be thoroughly cooked
  3. Add sauce to ground beef/turkey and mix well.
  4. Drain pasta and place in a large bowl. Add beef mixture, then the corn and combine.  Allow the flavors to infuse for a few minutes before serving.

Serves 6 – 8

Tip: Ground Turkey could be used for an even healthier meal
