The easiest pasta dish you’ll ever make, this flavorful spaghetti with meat sauce comes together in no time making it perfect for those busy nights.
In a previous life, I must have been an Italian. I love everything Italian cuisine. Tiramisu, gelato, cannoli, cheese, pizza, pasta, risotto. I could learn their language and pass as an Italian since I already have an accent.
The only thing that would give me away is my coffee. My heart cannot take espresso – I’m a French kind of girl – cafe au lait, please. Cappuccino comes in second.
And just like Italians, I could eat pasta every day for lunch or dinner. The good thing is that my family loves pasta as well so I don’t have to worry much when another pasta dish shows up on the weekly menu. We go through pasta so much, now, I actually buy Barilla® Organic Pasta and Barilla® Marinara Sauce in bulk from my local BJ’s. You know, to make sure I don’t run out!

Around here everyone loves their pasta in a certain way. My pasta has to be creamy, with a good amount of sauce and definitely with grated cheese on top.
My husband loves his pasta with lots of marinara sauce and with some sort of meat added to it.
Tiffany loves her pasta with cheese and very little sauce.
Three people, three different wishes.
I may not care much for meat in my pasta, my husband may not care much for grated cheese on top and Tiffany may not care for much sauce with her pasta but this spaghetti with pasta sauce made all of us lick clean our plates!
It’s THAT good!
For this spaghetti with meat sauce, I used Barilla® Organic Spaghetti and Barilla® Marinara Sauce. Have you seen their line of organic pasta? You can only find it at your local BJ’s. It comes in a box of six – 3 boxes of spaghetti and 3 boxes of penne.
Barilla® Organic Pasta is made from certified wheat with no GMO ingredients. For the best results, always cook it “al dente”
You can use penne in this recipe if you prefer, but Tiffany loves slurping on spaghetti 🙂
While at BJ’s grab some Barilla® Marinara Sauce. For the first time, it comes in a 4 jars pack!
Made from real vegetables, all natural and gluten free, you will taste the real difference in the Barilla® marinara sauce.
If you have a BJ’s close by, you should pay a visit and check their in-store demos happening on March 5th. so you can try the pasta and sauce together before you buy it. There was no need for me since I knew I’m gonna love it, but if you’re on the fence about you, go and try it for yourself!
