Directions

  1. Cook and stir ground beef in large pot over high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, water, carrot, onion soup mix, granulated garlic, oregano, basil, and thyme. Bring to a boil. Turn sauce down to a simmer and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. When sauce has finished cooking, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta stirring occasionally, until cooked but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  3. Serve Bolognese sauce over hot spaghetti.

Finally the spaghetti recipe I've been looking for! I've been searching for a simple recipe that tastes great and isn't from a jar. My family loved it! This will be a regular dish at my house!

Way too much meat, this recipe equals 1/2 lb of meat per person! I cooked as instructed but added 8oz tomato sauce. One box of noodles wasn't enough for the sauce so I saved half of the sauce for later, and it was still too much meat. Next time I'd use 1/2 lb meat. Actually, I don't plan on making this again.

This was so fast and easy. I also enjoyed the flavor. 2 cups of water evaporates quickly so I had to add more water (1/2 cup at a time) twice. Maybe I should have kept a lid on it, but it didn't say to do that. I will try that next time. My advise is to watch it closly, and make sure it's on a low simmer or you'll be using a brillo pad on the bottom of your pot. I really liked this dish, thanks

I've never had Bolognese before, so I'm not sure how the flavor of this compares to other recipes; however, we really enjoyed it. The carrots add a nice touch of sweetness while not being over powering. The only problem I had with this was the dryness. I ended up adding approximately 2 cups more water by the time the sauce was done (I simmered it in my slow cooker for approximately 4 hours on low). I think this would benefit from a can of diced tomatoes with their juices, so next time I'll try that addition.
