1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cans (6 ounces) tomato paste

4 cups (32 ounces) chicken broth

3 cups water

1 box (12 ounces) spaghetti, broken

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1) In a large pot, cook the ground beef until meat is cooked through; drain excess grease.  Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is tender.

2) Stir in the oregano, basil, pepper, tomato paste, broth, and water.  Bring to a boil.

3) Add the broken spaghetti a little at a time, stirring constantly, and return to boiling.  Stirring frequently, boil gently, uncovered, for 17-20 minutes of until spaghetti is tender and sauce is desired consistency.  The longer it cooks, the thicker the sauce.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
