Beefy Spaghetti is a super simple, rich and hearty last minute ground beef recipe. Just brown onions and garlic with ground beef, add pasta sauce, and serve over spaghetti. Simple!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar pasta sauce
  • 1 (16-ounce) package spaghetti pasta
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, in large skillet, cook ground beef with onion and garlic until beef is browned, breaking up beef with a fork so it cooks evenly. Drain well if necessary.

Add pasta sauce to ground beef mixture. Add 2 tablespoons water to pasta sauce jar, close lid, and shake to loosen remaining sauce. Pour into ground beef mixture. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, while the pasta cooks.

Cook spaghetti according to package directions until al dente. Drain well and place on serving plate. Top with meat sauce, sprinkle with cheese, and serve immediately.
