One-Pot Spaghetti

from Recipe Shoebox

1 lb. ground beef or ground sausage (or half of each)
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large can (32 oz) chicken broth (4 cups)
3 cups water
2 cans (6 oz. each) tomato paste
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 box (12 oz) spaghetti noodles, broken in half, uncooked
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese or other cheese, optional

1.  In a large saucepan cook the ground beef and/or sausage, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender.  Drain grease. 

2.  Stir in the broth, water, tomato paste, oregano, basil, and pepper.  Bring to a boil.

3.  Add the broken spaghetti, a little at a time, stirring constantly.  Return to boiling; reduce heat.  Boil gently, uncovered, for 17-20 minutes or until spaghetti is tender and sauce is of the desired consistency, stirring frequently.

Serve with Parmesan cheese.
