lean ground beef
2 1/2 tablespoons
I thought this was really good, although I did make a few changes. I changed the setting so that it was for 2 people. I used a whole small onion. I used 3 tbl spoons of the paste and 1 1/2 tsps of the turmeric. And I added 1 tsp of white pepper, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, and some cayenne. My boyfriend loved it! Nothing fancy...but good and easy.
I liked the flavor of this spaghetti, but I think the sauce needs more sauce. It only made just enough to barely coat the pasta. I think I would add a little more to it next time, but overall this was a good recipe.
This smelled good when the beef was cooking but I was a little confused in the last stage - how can the noodles and beef cook for 30-40 min without completely sticking to the pot? The final product was a little bland, but still edible.
This recipe almost tastes like the spaghetti I grew up eating. Ground turkey makes a great substitute in this recipe for those who aren't all that into beef. I added more salt and turmeric to taste. I also added dried basil and pepper to taste. When it came time to add the tomato paste mixture, I added half of the tomato paste mixture and half Prego. I kept adding Prego when more sauce was needed especially after the pasta was added to the meat mixture. It tasted great!
