How to make Dinner Spaghetti with Beef and Mushrooms
Step 1: Cook the spaghetti
Cook spaghetti according to the package directions, then drain and return back to the pot.
Step 2: Sauté mushrooms
While your pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add thinly sliced mushrooms, and cook them for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the mushrooms are ready, add chopped onion, minced garlic, beef, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 10 minutes until onions are soft and beef is no longer pink.
Step 4: Add tomatoes
Add the tomato soup/sauce and bring to a boil.
Step 5: Add cheese and cream
Reduce the heat, add the cream and Parmesan cheese, and cook for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Step 6: Combine
Add the sauce to the pasta and mix well.
Step 7: Garnish and enjoy
When serving, garnish each plate with chopped parsley.
- Make sure the pasta is cooked al dente. When cooked al dente, pasta is easier to digest.
- When cooking the beef and mushrooms, cook in batches if your skillet is not big enough. It’s important not to overcrowd the skillet.
- Substitute the mushrooms for other vegetables that pair well with beef and spaghetti. Fresh tomatoes, zucchini, or just plain with red onions on the side make unique pasta dishes.
