I am on low sodium diet so I have been experimenting with de-salting certain recipes, and this one was perfect!
To start, halve the recipe. Good enough for two.
1 lb. Lean ground beef (93/7)
1/2 medium yellow onion chopped as course as you like
4 medium cloves of garlic minced (2+Tbsp)
1 3/4 cups water
1 8oz. Can of NO SALT ADDED tomato sauce
1-2 fresh Roma tomatoes finely diced
1 Tbsp. Thyme
1 Tbsp. Oregano
1 Tbsp. Basil
1 Tbsp. Paprika
(Italian seasoning would probably work fine)
I used larger quantities of the individual spices to help add kick and flavor without adding sodium.
1 bay leaf
1 Tsp. Kosher salt (more or less depending on your sodium resrictions)
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 1/4 elbow macaroni
Otherwise follow cooking directions. I did reduce first simmer to 15 minutes, and after adding pasta, only cooked for 11 minutes - al dente (otherwise too mushy)
This turned out delicious! Exactly what I was craving!
