This One Pot spaghetti dish is quick, easy to make, flavorful, and delicious. It is cooked in delicious homemade, marinara meat sauce that makes it rich, creamy, and tasty.
I do not know about you but sometimes we need a quick and delicious homemade meal and this spaghetti dish is our go-to dish. Unlike the spaghetti and meat sauce, this pasta meal is made in one pot. One-pot means less cleaning up to do and more time to enjoy this meal with the ones you love.
This is my teenage daughter’s favorite recipe because the pasta is cooked in the sauce hence no extra pot to wash or straining involved. As a working mom, after a long day, school event, or game, this spaghetti recipe is my favorite.
One-Pot Spaghetti Recipe
This one-pot spaghetti with meat sauce recipe is as easy as can be. Although I like to use homemade marinara sauce, I have made this dish countless times with store-bought marinara or spaghetti sauce and homemade Italian seasoning to add rich flavor to the dish. Let me show you how to make this delicious dish, with few ingredients, and little cleanup time.

How to make One-pot spaghetti with meat sauce
Put a large pot on medium heat, add the olive oil, when hot, add the onions and garlic.
Add the ground meat, salt, paprika, crushed pepper flakes, Italian seasoning and cook until brown.
Stir in the marinara sauce, add the broth and bring to a boil.
When the liquid is boiling, add the spaghetti to the pot. Ensure the spaghetti is completely covered with the broth liquid.
Cover and cook over low to medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until the spaghetti is cooked. Stir occasionally to prevent the spaghetti from sticking to the pot.
Serve with Parmesan cheese and parsley and enjoy!

This spaghetti dish can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. To store for a longer time, store in a freezer for up to two months. Allow the food to cool, put in an airtight container or airtight bag to store in the refrigerator or freezer. It can be reheated in a saucepan or microwave.
Saucepan: To reheat the frozen spaghetti, bring it out of the freezer to thaw, place in a saucepan, add a little water or broth and reheat on low to medium heat until warm.
Microwave: Place food in a microwave-safe container, add a little water or broth, microwave with the lid on until warm. Remove the lid, stir, and enjoy .
You can create variations of this dish by substituting the minced meat to suit your dietary needs. I like to use a mix of minced beef and minced pork for this recipe. You can use mince turkey
For a meatless spaghetti dish: skip the minced meat product, or substitute with chopped mushrooms or acceptable alternatives.
Turkey or Pork: Substitute the minced beef for minced turkey or pork. You can mix half and half of the minced beef, turkey, and pork for a unique flavor.
