Easy Spaghetti Bolognese

Ready In: 15min
Yield: 4 servings
pot of angels See Larger Image

This is a true one-pot meal: meat, pasta, and veggies all cook together and, thanks to the super-skinny angel hair spaghetti, they cook together quickly. Plus, since you boil the pasta right in the sauce, the flavor soaks into every strand -- which is a good reason to use a great-tasting sauce.



  1. In a large, heavy pot over medium heat, sauté the beef until it is browning in places and no longer pink —3 or 4 minutes.
  2. Add the sauce and cook, stirring, for a minute or two, then stir in the salt, sugar, olive oil, water, pasta, and greens.
  3. Stir constantly until the mixture comes to a boil, then turn the heat down to low, cover the pot, and simmer gently — stirring frequently so that the bottom doesn't scorch —for 10 or so minutes, until the pasta is tender.
  4. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.

easy spaghetthi bolognese

This recipe would be great to make ahead on busy nights when the kids have dance lessons and baseball practice. I would just reheat it and serve. Even if I didn't make it ahead of time, it is so quick and easy that it takes no time at all. This recipe was easy, tasty, kid friendly and I loved that I could make it in one pot!

[Dylan] liked it and enjoyed cutting up spinach and stirring the ingredients into the pot. Dylan: "It was delicious."

[Ella] finished it! The kids rarely finish what I give them, especially Ella who is the pickiest of them all. She usually will pick things out of the food. I was expecting her to separate the spinach from the dish, but she didn't. Ella: "Super, super so good, I loved it!"
