One day I'm going to post a recipe and pics from an elaborate meal I've prepared for my family, I promise. I honestly do know how to make "nice" food, and I wish I had more time to do more "real" cooking, but for now I will continue to post what I actually do most - the quick stuff.

My kids love spaghetti sauce with angel hair pasta. I don't argue with noodles that cook in 3 minutes. I will admit, I cheat with my sauce. I'm not ashamed because we think it tastes really good. My secret? Prego Marinara. It doesn't have anything funky in it, no added sugar, and is reasonably priced.

I brown one pound of lean ground beef with diced onion, drain and rinse it, then mix it one jar of sauce and add a little extra Italian seasoning and let that simmer while I make the noodles. Add a side steamed vegetables, and you can have a nice dinner on the table in 15 minute flat.

So yes, I cheat, and I'm proud of it. :)

  1. I cheat too! I make a similar meal into sloppy joes! Add a little bbq sauce (I make my own) to the same mixture you put on pasta and put it on a bun/roll!
