Spaghetti with Beef Sauce

Tammy T


I loved this spaghetti I ate at a really nice resturant in San Francisco years ago. It did not have a tomato sauce as most do, it was more of a beef sauce like this one has. I came across this one on a site called efoodi by Olympia. I am not a fan of spaghetti with a lot of tomatoes for some odd reason, but I do like a little. I made this and love how different this is and it tastes really good. Beef flavored which is what I wanted. I still make my regular spaghetti but I like to change it up with this one. Really very good. I do double the sauce on this.
