Braces-Friendly Recipes

Here's a recipe that is safe for those of you with braces!

BEST BAKED SPAGHETTI (6-8 servings):

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped or 1 Tablespoon dried onion
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup Burgundy or merlot wine (Burgundy gives a deeper flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup grated American cheese, about 4 slices, or 1/2 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 lb. dry spaghetti, broken in half
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large no-stick frying pan or Dutch over, saute meat, onion and garlic.  Add tomato sauce, wine, oregano, sugar and salt.  Simmer, cover, 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  (It really makes a difference if you can take this amount of time!  Otherwise 20 minutes will serve to heat everything.)  Cook spaghetti and drain.  put half the spaghetti in a greased 3-quart casserole, and then add half the sauce and 1/4 cup of the grated cheese.  Add the remaining spaghetti and sauce, and stir everything with a large spoon.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.  Best if baked for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
