Spaghetti Recipe-

Though spaghetti is typically served with Meatballs, I love this quick one-pot version better. It’s so easy to make, tastes wonderful and is much quicker to make. This Bolognese recipe loaded with meaty sauce and mixed with the spaghetti pasta is phenomenal.

What kind of meat is used for spaghetti Bolognese?

I used ground pork in the recipe. Ground beef or turkey may be substituted instead of the pork, season the meat to taste.

How to reheat Spaghetti?

Keep leftover spaghetti covered and refrigerated. To reheat, melt a dab of butter in the skillet, add spaghetti and cook on medium heat until heated.

Marinara for Spaghetti-

You can use your favorite store-bought marinara sauce. Or, use the marinara recipe from our Meatball recipe if you want homemade spaghetti sauce.
