Spaghetti with Beef Marinara Sauce

Beef is the nastiest meat. The calorie count is high. Digestion rate is low up to 48 hours BUT we still love it.

Beef is like that person which is bad for us and will keep breaking our heart again and again BUT we still love her/him.

Beef is like that friend which your parents hate, your siblings despise and your relatives talk shit about BUT we still love that friend.

Despite of all that beef hate I still managed to cook this Italian recipe which as almost effortless as a rich kid's life and as easy as your boosting ego.

Spaghetti with Beef Marinara Sauce. The ingredients are simple and easy to found.

LET'S START (excited for no reason)

You need: 

500 grams lean ground beef

1 large onion finely chopped

1 teaspoon garlic powder

teaspoon onion powder

teaspoon turmeric powder

teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes or to taste

1 tablespoon dried basil leaves

Salt and pepper according to taste

1 whole head of garlic cloves peeled and chopped into large bits

1 whole small can tomato paste

1 1/2 jar of good marinara pasta sauce, look for one that is a rich red color and not so watery

500 grams of thick spaghetti pasta

Grated/shaved parmesan cheese for topping (optional)

Few fresh basil leaves for topping (optional)

Put beef in a good quality non stick pan (ami se kahein thorey se ziada pasie kherch ke bartan achay walay le aen).

Add salt, pepper, turmeric powder, chili flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, chopped onion and dried basil leaves in the pan with beef. Mix it well and start cooking on high heat until the beef turns brown and the water is all dried.

Add the chopped garlic now and saute for 2 mins on high heat.

Add the tomato paste, mix it and saute for a minute more.

Now lower the heat to medium or low and add the marinara sauce/pasta sauce. Simmer it until its completely hot.

Beef Marinara Sauce is ready now.

Time to boil the spaghetti now. Do not boil it for more than 7 minutes as for this recipe the pasta needs to be a bit chunky. Time to set up the plate.

Sprinkle a little grated parmesan on it and put a couple of fresh basil leaves. If you want to make it more spicy you can sprinkle more red chili flakes on your plate.

Spaghetti with Beef Marinara Suace ladies and gentlemen.
