Matt's Spicy Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

As with any family, we too have a few recipes that we eat at least once a week (and sometimes twice). I make 1 or 2 of them and Matt has a few goodies up his sleeves as well. Once in particular that we eat at LEAST once a week is spaghetti with meat sauce. I'm not going to call it Bolognese because it's got a little twist to it.
  • 1 package of ground beef
  • 1 package of spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 1 jar tomato sauce (about 3 cups)
  • 1 tsp steak seasoning
  • Sea salt
  • Vegetable oil - a dollop
  1. Boil water according to the package directions for the pasta but add the sea salt to the boiling water. Add in the pasta and get those noodles cooking.
  2. Add the vegetable oil to a frying pan and heat it up, add in the ground beef and start to cook. You can season with a little salt and pepper if you like. Add in the steak seasoning.
  3. Cook the meat till it starts to smell like a well done burger - you want the meat to be almost well done. 
  4. Drain the grease off. 
  5. Add in the tomato sauce and the franks. Make sure you stir in the franks really well otherwise you'll have a few hots bites and the rest will be fairly mild. This is key.
  6. At this point, your pasta should be ready. Strain the pasta and serve to each dish. We like to add the pasta to the dish first then add the meat sauce on top.
  7. Enjoy!

Matt hard at work.
