Before you can start making your spaghetti you will need to first get the proper supplies and materials. To make this spaghetti  you will need a box of spaghetti, marinara sauce, 2.25 lbs. of ground beef, a 12 inch pan, a 5 quart pot, a stove, a silicone spoon and serving spoon, and water.

Step 2: Cooking the meat

Next you will need to cook the 2.25 lbs. of meat. Take all of the meat out of its container and set it all in the 12 inch pan. When the meat is in the pan then put the pan on the stove and set the stove to medium. After that you will need to break the meat into smaller pieces. When the meat is in small pieces you will then need to start flipping the meat and make sure it gets brown all-around and cooked thoroughly. The cooking should take approximately 15 minutes. Next, when all of the meat is brown and cooked you can turn the stove off.

First to cook the spaghetti you will need to fill the 5 quart pot with 3 quarts of warm water. Then you will need to boil it, so put the pot on the stove and put the flame level to high. When the water is starting to boil take the spaghetti out of the box and break all of them in half and set them in the water. Then wait about 9 minutes for the noodles to cook all the way.  You can stir in those 9 minutes. Finally, after the 9 minutes turn the stove to low.

Step 4: Mixing in the sauce

Next you will need to mix your marinara sauce with your cooked meat. So take your jar of marinara sauce and pour all of it on the cooked meat and then stir it all around until it is all blended together. Then put the pan on the stove and set it to low.

For pasta that sticks less, I recommend putting the noodles in the warm water before it even boils. This washes off some of the starch.

You don't necessarily need to break the noodles in half if you'd prefer long noodles!

Finally, once the noodles are ready, you can put them through a strainer over the sink to get rid of water, then put them back on the stove at very low heat to keep them warm.
