What do you put in your spaghetti?

I know most people use ground beef/turkey, meatballs or chicken. But is there anything else you use, or even add to the usuals to make it a little more "special"? Thanks mamas.

  • Ground beef & a break up 2-3 Italian sausages. Canned sauce, fresh sauteed veggies (mushrooms, green pep, onions, garlic, & celery), fresh parm, and a can of crushed or diced toms.

  • I brown the meat with onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. While that's being taken care of, I boil chunks of squash and zucchini. Once the meat is cooked, I remove it from the pan and drain the grease. While the meat is still in the colander, I put the sauce in the pan and add cajun seasoning, a bit of cayenne, oregano, basil, salt and pepper, and parmesan. Then I put the meat back in, add the squash and zucchini, and stir it all together.

  • Sometimes we roast veggies in olive oil and add to pasta. Simple and delicious. We love eggplant, zucchini, mushroom, and red pepper combination the most.

  • I always put olives in mine. I thought it was normal growing up, but i'm starting to find out it's not! Lol! My spaghetti always has deer or elk hamburger and sausage in it. We're not big beef fans around here!

  • Hamburger, olives, celery, onion, carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, zucchini, garlic, & cheese. I like my spaghetti really chunky.
