Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Brown the Ground Beef
Turn your stove top on med-high heat and put the pan on to warm up
Next, put the whole pack of ground beef into the pan and break up the meat so that it separated into little pieces
Brown the meat (it takes about 10 min) so there is no pink
Step 2: Drain the Ground Beef
Drain the grease in the colander and ensure there is no left over grease
Then pour the drained beef back into its original pan and cover, turn down heat to low-medium
Step 3: Cut the Beef Hot Links and Brown Them
Cut all hot links into half inch rounds
After every link is cut add them to the meat in the pan
Turn the heat back up to medium and stir both hot links and ground beef together
Step 4: Pour Both Jars of Sauce Into the Pan
Add both jars of sauce into the pan and stir
Cover the pan with the lid that fits your pan
Frequently stir the sauce (meaning every two min)
The sauce will be complete when it starts to simmer
Step 5: Cook the Noodles
Fill up the pot 3/4 of water
Turn heat up to high to allow the water to boil
Once the water is at a boil add both packs of noodles
For authentic "al dente" noodles, boil for 6 min, stirring occasionally. For more tender noodles boil an additional min or two
For other authentic options you can follow this video for instructions on how to make homemade pasta noodles!
Step 6: Drain the Noodles
Drain well and cool the noodles (optional)
If you choose to cool the noodles rinse with cool water and re-drain the noodles
Step 7: Serve Your Spaghetti
Make your plate and enjoy!
Congratulations you just made your first spaghetti dinner
