Spaghetti

11 May

 

I am currently expecting and cannot diet, but as soon as this sweet bean pops out, it’s back to diet and exercise for this family! So each week I will be calculating each meal for both calories and cost.  That way, when the time comes, calorie counting should be a cinch!

My Son’s all-time favorite! Better than ice cream to him!  This is simply basic spaghetti and the calorie count.

Spaghetti

Ingredients:

1 Jar Ragu Spaghetti Sauce
1 lb ground beef
1/2 box Spaghetti Noodles

Directions:

Brown meat.  Drain.  Add spaghetti sauce.  Simmer while noodles boil.  In a separate pan, boil water.  Add noodles and allow to boil for about 10 minutes or until soft.  Serve topped with parmesan cheese, if desired!
