I wanted to share a tip with you for how to season your beef (or other ground meat) for spaghetti. This is a great kitchen tip and you will wind up with perfect tasting meat for your spaghetti as a result. Not seasoning your beef will leave it bland.
How to Season your Beef for Spaghetti:
For my seasoned beef I like to add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, chopped onion and minced garlic. I brown the ground beef, minced garlic and onion. Drain off any excess fat, then add the seasonings. Making sure to mix the beef well with the seasonings. Next all you have to do is combine the meat with your sauce and heat thoroughly. Serve over pasta.
If you are using 1 lb of beef then I would suggest the following ratio however it is really up to your taste preference.
- 1 tsp minced garlic (you can use ½ tsp dry)
- ¼ cup minced onion (you can use 1 tsp dry)
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp salt
- ⅛ tsp pepper
I like to serve my spaghetti with Garlic Breadsticks.
