Spaghetti is a go-to favorite for many families. However because of the speed of life and the time crunch that we find ourselves in, we resort to a quick version of our favorite staple. The quick version is often times less than nutritious.
Here is a simple way to make a lazy, spaghetti meat sauce that is both nutritious and paleo.
20 ounces of paleo pasta sauce, roughly 1 jar (you can use an organic, paleo sauce available at your local market or you can use our marinara sauce recipe)
1/2 – 3/4 cup of water
1 pound of ground beef
Over high heat, combine pasta sauce, water and ground beef in a large pot.
Let cook on high for roughly 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Break up meat as needed to prevent it from clumping.
After 20 minutes cover, reduce to low or simmer and let cook for 1 hour.
Serve with your favorite paleo pasta or spaghetti squash.
We provide you the option to adjust how much water you would like to add to this recipe, less water will provide a thicker, meatier sauce. Adjust the water to your liking. Additionally it is important to continue to stir the sauce during the first 20 minutes, this will help to break up the meat and prevent it from clumping.
This is a simple recipe that will leave your family and friends thinking you spent hours preparing a meal for them.
