Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped celery

  • 2 cups Progresso® beef broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 12 oz uncooked spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen® organic fire roasted crushed tomatoes, undrained

    Using tongs, immediately lift, and stir mixture 1 to 2 minutes or until pasta is completely separated. Spaghetti will appear to be stuck together but will separate while stirring.

  • For a pretty (and tasty) finishing touch, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese and thinly sliced fresh basil leaves.
  • Try to evenly cover the pasta with the tomatoes. This helps the pasta cook evenly under pressure.
  • Sprinkle each serving with shredded Parmesan cheese and thinly sliced basil leaves for a pretty (and tasty) finishing touch.
  • Make sure your pasta is evenly covered with tomatoes. This helps the pasta to cook consistently under pressure, so you don’t end up with any over- or undercooked noodles.
  • Serve spaghetti with a garden salad and Pillsbury™ French bread on the side for a filling meal.
