Spaghetti with Zesty "Bolognese"

While this is so very much NOT a bolognese, it was still very good. I found this on Elizabeth's blog; I believe she found it in a Kraft magazine.

  • 12 oz dry spaghetti noodles
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 2 TBSP Cream cheese, softened (I used 2 oz)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • dash red pepper flakes
  • Flat-leaf Parsley, chopped
Cook pasta to al dente. Drain & set aside.

Meanwhile, saute onions & garlic in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add ground beef and brown. Season with salt & pepper, to taste.

Add tomatoes, Italian dressing, & Italian seasoning, & parsley. I also added a cube of frozen basil from Trader Joe's. Bring to a low boil. Add red pepper flakes.

Add cream cheese and stir in until melted and well-combined. Toss with pasta. Serve topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
