One Pot Spaghetti
1-1/2 pounds ground beef (could use half mild Italian sausage)
1 small onion, chopped (or 2 tablespoons dried minced onion)
1 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, pressed
1-1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 (6 ounce can) tomato paste
2-1/2 cups tomato juice
3-1/2 cups water (may need more)
2 tablespoons brown sugar (more of less to taste)
8 ounces regular spaghetti
In a 3 quart pot on the stove, mix together and brown the first six (6) ingredients over medium high heat. Drain any accumulated fat.
Add the tomato paste, tomato juice, water and brown sugar and mix well.
Bring to boil and simmer 20-30 minutes. Add the spaghetti (uncooked) broken in half if you prefer. Mix well and cover, Cook until spaghetti is done al dente and sauce has thickened. Check and stir every few minutes to make sure spaghetti is not sticking together, and add more water if necessary. Should be ready in about 20 minutes,
