Clarie Kelley's Spagetti

Bear's Anecdote - Years ago, Bear's mother sent Jodie and Bear a box of recipes. Here is one from the box.

OK, here is one to embarrass my sister the sister, Barbara Kelley O.P. I don't have to say anything more than that for her to know what I am about to say. :-) One time, Barb went to some friend's house for dinner. She got home and my mother asked her, "What did you have for dinner?" Her answer was a classic. "Forgotti."

  1. Heat oil in skillet.
  2. Add onions and garlic.
  3. Cook until onions turn yellow.
  4. Brown meat in onions and garlic, and stir until crumbly.
  5. Mix tomato paste, water and seasonings.
  6. Stir tomato stuff into meat.
  7. If you wish, stick some meat balls in there, too
  8. Cover and simmer over low heat for an hour.
  9. Uncover and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes until it thickens.
  10. Serve on spagetti noodles and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Also good on macaroni, egg noodles and rice, too!
