One-Pot Spaghetti

One-Pot Spaghetti

My variation of an old Southern Living recipe - a double recipe will fill a Dutch oven and make plenty for an extended family dinner.

  • Serves: 6 persons



  1. Step 1

    Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and garlic until beef is browned and crumbly and onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard excess grease.
  2. Step 2

    Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water, chili powder, oregano, and black pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and let simmer, stirring often, for about 30 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Break spaghetti into thirds and add to the pot; cover and simmer, stirring often, until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.
