One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese

Made With


Step 1
Spaghetti Bolognese is a family favorite, and this recipe shows you how to make this classic pasta dish in just four simple steps. Layers of flavor build in the skillet, starting with browned ground beef, garlic, and onion simmered in Prego® Farmers’ Market Marinara Sauce. The spaghetti is cooked in the same pan, so the entire meal is ready to go from the stovetop to the table in just 30 minutes. The classic combination of ground beef, tomato sauce, and cheese is a crowd pleaser, and a serving of this beef Bolognese recipe is a good source of fiber, protein, iron, and vitamin D.
Step 2
Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the beef with salt and pepper. Add the beef, onion and garlic and cook until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Step 3
Stir in the sauce, wine (or 1/4 cup water, if desired), milk, 1 3/4 cups water and uncooked spaghetti and heat to a boil (press the spaghetti down so that it cooks in the sauce mixture).
Step 4
Cook, uncovered, (keep at medium-high heat) until the spaghetti is tender, stirring occasionally (the spaghetti should be al dente at about 12 minutes).
Step 5
Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving, if desired.
Step 6
Ingredient Note: For more beef flavor, substitute Swanson® Beef Broth or Stock for the water.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup) (buy pre- cut to save prep time)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jar (23.5 ounces) Prego® Farmers' Market Classic Marinara Sauce
1/4 cup dry red wine (if you'd rather not use the wine, replace with water)
1/2 cup reduced fat (2%) milk
1 3/4 cups water
8 ounces uncooked spaghetti or whole grain spaghetti, broken in half
