Coogs Kitchen: Spaghetti

Want a recipe that is a sure way to anyone’s heart through their stomach? How about spaghetti that you can make in 3 different ways: vegetarian, meat, and supreme!


1 pkg Spaghetti Pasta
UH: $3
Grocery: $1.30

Salt and Pepper TT
UH:$2.40 for 2 shakers
Grocery: $4 for 2 shakers

a few cloves of garlic
Grocery: $1.20 for a few cloves

UH: $0.99 per onion
Grocery: $0.45 per onion

UH: $2.50 for one package
Grocery: $1.80 for one package

2 Bell Peppers (any color is fine)
UH: $0.99 per bell pepper
Grocery: $0.49 per bell pepper

2 Jars of Non-meaty Tomato Sauce
UH: $3 per jar
Grocery: $1.60 per jar ($2.85 for one large jar instead of 2 regular ones)

2 Tomatoes
UH: $0.99 per tomato
Grocery: $0.95 per tomato

a pkg of ground beef
Grocery: $4

(If you are making vegetarian or supreme) Wash your vegetables and then dice up your mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, and only half of your onion. Next fill your pot to about ¾ of the way full with warm water and place it on the stove. Sprinkle a little bit of salt in it and turn the heat on so the water can boil. While the water boils you can do one of three things to prepare the sauce. You can add butter to your pan and saute the vegetables; or you can add no vegetables and just heat up the ground beef in the pan, flavoring it with salt, pepper and garlic (which is optional), and making sure you drain the fat; or you can do what I’m doing in this episode and cook the meat then add the veggies, covering the pan so they can all cook together and the veggies can soak up some of the fat. Which ever way you cook it, you’ll always end with adding the tomato sauce when everything is cooked. Once you add the tomato sauce, cover your pan and let it simmer on low. While that is happening, when the water starts to boil, cook your pasta according to the package directions and when the pasta is ready, drain your pot. Then just plate, eat and let your heart melt.
