Rachael Ray has some pretty good ideas. I found this one in one of her cookbooks. My dad is a HUGE spaghetti fan so I decided to make this one for him. It was a hit and a twist on the traditional spaghetti.
1 pound spaghetti noodles
3 slices bacon, chopped
1 pound ground beef (or turkey or whatever you like)
1 onion, chopped,
4 garlic cloves, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 14oz can diced tomatoes
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
4 scallions, chopped
Cook spaghetti, drain.
Meanwhile cook the bacon and drain on paper towels. Drain off the fat. Cook the beef and cook for about 3 minutes. Add onion and garlic and continue to cook. Season with salt and pepper and worcestershire sauce. Cook fora bout 5 minutes more until onions are tender and then add the tomatoes and tomato sauce.
Add the spaghetti to the sauce to combine. Serve up with favorite cheesy garlic bread. Sprinkle top with scallions. I made cheddar buttermilk biscuits.
They were super yummy with this.
