Friday, July 19, 2013 a Simple Red Sauce

Maybe twice a year a get the Real Simple edition filled mostly with recipes. It's like getting a mini-cookbook, each page turned makes me drool just a little. This recipe for a quick red sauce makes an easy dinner and plenty of leftovers for the week. And I think the flavors in the sauce gets better each day.
12 ounces spaghetti (3/4 of a box)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 pound ground beef
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce)

Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 8 to 10 minutes.
Increase heat to medium-high. Add the beef, salt, and pepper and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce slightly thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley.
Serve the pasta with the sauce and sprinkle with the Parmesan.

Happy Cooking!
