1 pound pasta -- any kind
1 package spagetti sauce mix
1 can tomato paste
1 pound lean hamburger -- ground turkey
or italian sausage
2 stiring spoons
potholders or gloves
Heat water to a boil in a large pot. In a smaller pot cook the meat and
add the sauce mix, water, and tomato paste according to the instructions
on the sauce package. Cook the pasta in the water for 8-10 minutes.
Place the lid on the pot and with gloves or pot holders drain the water
from the pasta through the crack between the lid and the pot. Putting
the pot on a stump or log and letting the stump or log hold the weight
of the pot helps. Mix the sauce with the drained pasta and serve .
Grated cheese may be used with the pasta.
Pasta notes: Spagetti is the traditional pasta, but wheels, or other
forms that are more compact and larger will be much easier to drain.
