There were so many times when my girls were growing up that I always need to get dinner on the table in a hurry. And being a child who grew up eating Hamburger Helper a lot for dinner I just didn’t want to have my children growing up on it to. It’s all right sometimes I guess but I have notice that over the years the amount of pasta that you get in the box of mix has changed and you almost have to use 2 boxes for the pound of ground beef that the mix calls for.
So over the years I have come up with my own version of a hamburger helper. I believe that this recipe taste so much better than theirs. And it’s such an easy dish to prepare because you make it all in the same skillet.
Skillet Spaghetti1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1(16 OZ.) jar pasta sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 (4oz.) can mushrooms
2 cups water
8 oz. spaghetti, broken in half
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
In a large Dutch over medium-high heat cook ground beef, onions and minced garlic until meat is brown and onions are tender; drain. Add pasta sauce, bouillon cube, Italian seasoning, mushrooms and water; bring to a boil. Add pasta; cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Sprikle cheese over top; serve.
