Years ago when visiting some relatives in Cincinnati, I had the “Cincinnati Chili,” and this recipe reminded me of that but without the cinnamon, cloves or chocolate. I got this recipe out of a library book that I really like called Quick Meal Solutions. It’s full of great ideas for fast, easy, healthy, family friendly meals. I can see this recipe becoming a family favorite at our house, just like the Taco Spaghetti.

, Chili Spaghetti,

Here is what you need:

  • 10 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 tsp. oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • One 26 oz. jar pasta sauce
  • One 15 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 T chili powder
  • optional: cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions, fritos or tortilla chips

Heat oil, and cook ground beef, onion and garlic, then drain.

I already had my ground beef cooked, so I just sauteed the onion and garlic, and then added my beef, pasta sauce and chili powder. After that has warmed through, add your drained and rinsed kidney beans and cook for about 5 more minutes.
Cook your pasta according to package directions.

After pasta is cooked and drained, you are ready to serve.
