Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner.

I never had problems with my kids’ appetites until two months ago when my little boy turned 32 months old. What happened is still a mystery to me, but he used to eat anything and everything you put on his tray or plate. He would devour all of it like an adult. Now, he won’t even try it if it is something new to his eyes. My little girl, on the other hand, is still the good eater that she is. Vegetables, fruits, pasta, chicken, beef, pork, anything, you name it and she will just eat it like a good girl. She turned 16 months old yesterday.
So, without much dilly-dallying, here is a very quick and easy spaghetti recipe the kids (and the rest of the family) will absolutely love! If everything turns out well, this will be ready in 25 minutes. It can serve 8 people and, if you will be feeding very hungry ones, it can only serve 4! (Hahaha!)
- 1 pound spaghetti pasta
- 1 small onion, peeled and minced
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 24 oz Three Cheese Italian sauce
- ¼ cup Mild Cheddar cheese, shredded
- ¼ cup whole milk
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 quarts water
- Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)
- salt and pepper
- Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add ground beef, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir occasionally. Cook until beef is brown or until cooked through.
- Add the sauce, milk, sugar, cheddar cheese and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add some salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour spaghetti meat sauce over drained pasta, toss, and sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese before serving if desired.
Add a little olive oil to your cooked pasta after draining to avoid it from sticking together.
