#TastyTuesday ~ Kristina's Simple Spaghetti Bolognese

It's been a while since I've shared a recipe here on the blog, but I made this just last week and thought - I really need to share. Because simple + delish = winning at dinner...don't you think? So, here we go:

Kristina's Simple Spaghetti Bolognese:

Ingredients:

1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
2 6-ounce cans tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound lean ground beef
2-3 tablespoons cream cheese
3-4 cups Angel Hair pasta, cooked

Directions: 

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain and then return it to the pan and set it aside. In a medium sauce pan combine tomato sauce and paste, water and garlic. Heat to boiling and then cover, simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn the burner under the large skillet (with the ground beef) to medium. Add the sauce and the cream cheese and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Once the cream cheese is melted and mixed through the sauce, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

And, for the pasta: Fill a large sauce pan 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil; once boiling, add the angel hair and cook for 7-8 minutes. Drain the pasta and you’re ready to serve.

There you have it, my lovelies, a super-simple pasta dish. And, it's related to not one but two of my books...Monica and Trick ate a version of this in What a Texas Girl Dreams and Paige cooked this for Kaylie in The Daughter He Wanted...you can click over to my Facebook page for a teaser from The Daughter He Wanted.
