How to Make Cheese Spaghetti
- 1For sauce - Heat oil in a non-stick Dutch oven. Add chopped onion to hot oil and saute until translucent. Add tomato paste, water, sugar and salt to taste. Cover with a lid and simmer until hot.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add spaghetti; cook to package directions.
While these are cooking, shred your cheese.
When spaghetti is finished cooking, drain well. Add spaghetti to pot with sauce and mix to coat. Add all of the shredded cheese and stir in. Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving so sauce will thicken.
We usually serve this with smoked sausage and a vegetable.
