Kid-Friendly Spaghetti recipe

Super easy and delicious Kid-Friendly Spaghetti recipe - one the whole family loves! { lilluna.com }

It seems like everyone I have ever met has “a spaghetti recipe” they know and love. At the same time, everyone seems to have a different recipe for the common meal. Some have store-bought sauce, some homemade. Some have meat, some don’t. Some have veggies, others don’t. It just surprises me that they are all different, but I love that everyone has their own twist on the dish and have been making it a certain way for years. Like so many other families, we too have a Spaghetti recipe everyone loves. We make it in our home at least once a month and it’s a recipe EVERYONE, including the baby, loves.

With that in mind, that’s probably why we make this spaghetti so often. It’s simple and everyone likes it. I usually serve it with some cheesy garlic bread and a side like Fried Zucchini, and it makes for one delicious meal!

    Lil' Luna

Mique

My family loooves spaghetti. Josh usually makes it on Sunday with a “secret ingredient” for everyone to guess. 😉 We’ll have to try this one. Pinned!

    Lil' Luna

    That’s so fun!! Definitely have Josh give this recipe a try… it’s so easy and delish!! XO

Yum, Yum, Yummmmmmy! This looks lip smackin’ good!!! I can’t wait to try this recipe!!!! 🙂

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know if you do try it. It’s our FAVORITE!! 😀

Michele

This was so good. Tried it lastnight. Not only did my husband and I both like it, but my picky little eater loved it too! And she usually wants spaghetti with no sauce. Lastnight she asked for “a little more sauce”. So kudos to you, I’ll definitely be sifting through your other website and goodies on your site.

    Lil' Luna

    Your comment made my day, Michele! I LOVE hearing that. This Spaghetti recipe is definitely our fav! Our kids are picky too but they’ll eat this no problem at all!! 😀

Brittany

My kids and husband are extremely picker eaters and hate jar sauce, so this was a good find. They love it. The only thing I found is that a whole box of noodles (at least the barilla multigrain kind I use) is too much for the amount of sauce. So I only use 3/4 of a box of noodles and we have plenty leftover with our family of 5.

Sally

I found this recipe via Recipe Girl and the weekly meal plans. This reminds me of the spaghetti I ate when growing up — except that there was onion in it.

I did make one major change to the preparation of the recipe. I recently read the article at Food52 about the origins of Martha Stewart’s One Pan Pasta Recipe along with some variations. I decided to try and make this with that method. Instead of adding 2 cups of water, I added 4 1/2 cups and the spaghetti and let it boil for 9 minutes. Perfect! And only one pan to wash.

    Lil' Luna

    Oh, perfect! I’m so glad you liked it and will have to try it one pan next time I make it. Thanks for the tip! 😀

Dusty

Do you drain the fat from the hamburger? and what mix should I use 70/30 or something leaner?

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, you could drain the meat or you don’t have to. I have done both and they work out the same..it just depends on what you like and as far as the meat, you could use whatever meat you like. I use whatever I have on hand, usually 80/20, but any of it, will be just fine in this recipe. Hope you enjoy, as much as we do…it’s the best!

Jennifer Geiman

I’d like to try this recipe. Do you use a pound of pasta? The amount isn’t specified in the recipe.
Thanks!
