Homemade Spaghetti



Homemade Spaghetti
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed tomato soup
  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (I used the one that had garlic, oregano, and basil seasoning already in it)
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Brown ground beef with the onion and garlic until meat is brown. Drain. Return meat mixture to pan with tomato paste, tomato soup, diced tomatoes, and water. Cook, stirring, until heated through and thickened, 5 to 15 minutes. Serve over cooked pasta.

Special K Challenge and Beyond

As many of us know, Special K is a great cereal to eat when we are trying to lose weight. Now, to make life even easier for us, they are now offering their first ever book: Special K Challenge and Beyond. This great book has over 100 recipes as well as fitness and nutrition tips. There are several recipe categories to pick from too: vegetarian, seafood, meat, main dishes, appetizers, soups, side dishes and deserts. One of my personal favorites is the Pasta with Bolognese Sauce. I love that this cookbook also has ingredients that are in my house.  There are no strange ingredients you’ll only use once.  There are a ton of recipes that are both healthy and foods that you (and your kids) will actually eat!  You also can use this cookbook even if you aren’t doing the Special K Challenge.  The whole book isn’t a cookbook either.  The beginning of the book is about weight management.  It has great tips like seasoning your meals with variety (so you diet doesn’t get boring!).

Special K Challenge and Beyond is a great book whether you are trying to lose weight or just eat healthier.  There definitely a recipe for everyone in here!
