Giant - This Week's Specials

Over the weekend, my friends and I volunteered to cook and serve lunch at Bethany Center. We kept the meal pretty simple with salad, bread, spaghetti with meat or veggie sauce, and some brownies. The unfortunate thing was that we all were late and in the end, I felt like I was a contestant in the show Chopped. I was slicing and dicing at record speed. I browned the beef and sauteed the onions and garlic. Everything was thrown together as fast as possible and as well as possible so that we could be sure we got lunch made for the ladies by noon. We were a little late but everything turn out fine. Better than fine. The meat sauce was GREAT. I took a bite and could not believe how tasty the sauce was. It tasted rich like it had been stewed for hours. I thought that maybe it was the ground beef I chose but it didn't make sense. It was more than the beef. Then I realized the my friend Christine got Ragu spaghetti sauce. It was strange because another friend of mine had just mentioned to me how much her man friend loves that sauce. I've been turning my nose at Ragu for years because I thought it was an inferior brand. And now it is all I can think about. All I can think about is getting a jar of Ragu, getting some ground beef, and replicating what I made at Bethany Center.

  1. i always use ragu as my secret ingredient! the meat sauce flavor. i've tried prego and even the fancier labels, but always go back to ragu. use that as the base and throw in the fresh ingredients and some good ol' garlic salt. a must is lots of good lean ground beef, mushrooms (I'm partial to the button ones in the can), fresh garlic and onions... of course butter too! can't say mine is the healthiest spaghetti, but never had a complaint! = )
