I know most people know how to make spaghetti. It's one of the first dishes you learn how to make. Well this is the way I make my spaghetti... I'm going to Ask my homegirl Nichelle to add a picture of the spaghetti she made using my recipe. Thanks Nichelle. LOL!
Fill a large pot up halfway to three quarters of the way to the top with water. Set it on the stove over a high fire. Sprinkle salt into the water and cover.
Put your ground turkey, beef or chicken in the pan. You may also add your choice of italian sausage. It comes in pork, turkey or chicken. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, minced onion. If you have green peppers put a little in there too.
With your spatula, start browning your meat. Once your meat is browned, not too much. season again with the same seasonings (minus the green peppers). Cook a little more, maybe five minutes.
Add two small cans of tomato paste. Mix in with meat.
Add a jar of spaghetti sauce and mix in. turn your fire down to simmer. Season once again, lightly this time. cover your pan.
At this time your water should be boiling. Add your spaghetti and pour a little oil into the water to keep the spaghetti from sticking together. turn your fire down to almost medium. You want your water to keep boiling but not too much. leave your pot uncovered because if it’s covered the water will boil over.
At about two tablespoons of white sugar to your sauce and stir. Add bay leaves if you have them. three or four is good enough. Stir again. and cover back up. (continue to watch your sauce and stir.
Stir your spaghetti. You will need it to cook at boiling for about 11 minutes. To make sure your spaghetti is done, take one with a fork and see how easily it cuts against the inside of the pot. It should cut VERY easily. If not, let it cook a little while longer.
Almost done. at this point you’ll know what to do from here. you can sprinkle some cheese into the sauce, heat up your garlic bread. While your garlic bread is heating, drain your spaghetti, put it back to the pot and add your sauce. Your garlic bread should be almost done at this point.
