Healthy Spaghetti Dinner

Spaghetti is a family favorite however, with our new look on health, not always the best option. This recipe is easy, delicious and salt-free!! After indulging in Disney all last week, we certainly need the break from the salt mines!

Pick N Save has ground beef on sale and I am pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! It is normally $4.29/lb. and I got it for $2.49/lb. So, I grabbed a bunch to make my featured recipe today:

Healthy Spaghetti Dinner
1 lb ground beef
2 tbs olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 onion
1 lb mushrooms
2 can dice tomatoes
1 tbs italian seasoning
1 tsp sugar
pepper, to taste
1 lb spaghetti
1 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated

1. Prepare pasta to package instructions. Retain one cup of the pasta water for the sauce.

2. Brown meat. Remove from pan to drain off excess grease.

3. Saute garlic and red pepper flakes in olive oil. Add onions and mushrooms until soft. Add tomatoes. seasoning, sugar and pepper. Thin with pasta water, if necessary. Add meat to the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve over pasta.
