Mother’s Day is right around the corner- May 10th! What do you do to celebrate Mother’s Day? I love spending time with all the mami’s in my family, and of course my darling daughter! I also spend the day remembering my dear mama who passed away. Though she may no longer be with us, I always feel her watching over us. I hope I am being at least half of the amazing mother and woman she was! She left some pretty big shoes to fill!
While it’s nice to go out and eat at a fancy restaurant, I like to cook up a delicious meal at home! My mom always made a delicious meal for us on Mother’s Day. Nothing like a home cooked meal! Today I want to share with you all a delicious recipe- Barilla® Spaghetti with San Marzano Tomato Meat Sauce!
For this recipe I headed to my local Walmart to pick up all the ingredients I needed. I love going to Walmart! Their prices are always the best in my opinion. Now let’s get started making this delicious Barilla® Spaghetti with San Marzano Tomato Meat Sauce!
1 box Barilla® Spaghetti
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
1 stem celery, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup White wine (optional)
1 28-ounce can San Marzano Tomatoes
1 cup water
Salt and black pepper to taste
1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, shaved
PLACE a pot of water to boil. MEANWHILE, in a large skillet, sauté the onion, carrot and celery with the extra virgin olive oil. ADD the meat and cook until browned well. INCORPORATE the tomatoes and 1 cup of water, season with salt and pepper to taste and bring to a simmer.
COOK pasta in the boiling water according to the package directions. DRAIN pasta and toss with sauce. TOP with cheese.
OPTIONAL: After the meat is browned, you can de-glaze the sauce by adding the wine and let it reduce all the way.
This Barilla® Spaghetti with San Marzano Tomato Meat Sauce recipe is so delicious and easy to make! Even though it is pasta, I love that it’s not too heavy. Nothing like a quick and tasty meal! More family time together! Happy Mother’s Day!
