 1 lb Linguine
 12 oz Tomato Paste
 14.50 oz Diced Tomatos
 3 Small Bay Leaves (I love bay leaves so I added 3, you can add 1 if you'd like)
 2 tsp Salt (whatever floats your boat)
 1 tbsp Butter
 ¾ tsp Black Pepper (whatever tickles your fancy)
 2 tbsp Olive Oil
 1 tbsp Oregano
 24 oz Water
 1 ½ lbs Ground Beef
 3 Garlic Cloves
 1 Whole onion

My husband and I couldn't agree on a restaurant, so low and behold, I went to our cupboard to see what I could create last minute; and spaghetti was the winner. I have to say our Friday night ended up being pretty dang awesome! Instead of dining out we spent our time in the kitchen together. It was a win win for the both of us.

Let's get started. Grab yourself a pan for your linguine, one to sauté your onions and ground beef and another for your spaghetti sauce.

My husband enjoys chopping, so he chopped the onions and sautéed them until it was a nice golden color.

3

In my pan I added the tomato paste, then I filled the empty 12oz tomato paste can with water and poured it into my pan. I used a wooden spoon to mix the tomato paste and water together, until it looked like tomato soup (I prefer my spaghetti sauce to have more of a soupy consistency, so I added another 12oz of water). After the tomato paste and water were blended, I added the diced tomatoes along with 3 bay leaves. I put the spaghetti sauce over a medium heat, while my linguine and meat were being cooked.

Add the following ingredients to your spaghetti sauce: 3 smashed garlic cloves, salt and pepper (add to your liking. I use my eye and heart; I make my food with a whole lotta love), add some oregano (think Italian), olive oil and butter.

Once the onions were golden, we added those to our spaghetti sauce. Cook the meat in the pan you used for your onions. Cook the ground beef until you cannot see anymore pink and then add the cooked ground beef to your spaghetti sauce.

4

While you've got your sauce put together and cooking on a low simmer, check on your linguine (I added salt and canola oil to my linguine to prevent the pasta from sticking together). Once the linguine is done, drain.

Now the best part. Get yourself a bowl, fill it up with some linguine and then add your spaghetti sauce. Sit back and enjoy your delicious spaghetti, all while, binging on your favorite Netflix show.
