For most of my life Spaghetti was 1 1/2 Lbs Ground Hamburger Browned, 2 Jars/Cans of Prego mixed in, and then this was served individually over the standard Spaghetti or Angel Hair Pasta. This was meant to be a quick, no-fuss meal.
Recently I started making it for the same reasons, but I think it lacks something. I started first with the easy stuff. I would dump in some chopped garlic and Italian Seasoning while the hamburger was browning. I then decided to start cutting up a large tomato and green bell pepper to throw in with the sauce. Next I started buying a can of sliced mushrooms to put in as well. Then, most recently, I tried mixing in some italian sausage with my hamburger. Personally I think these were all improvements, and added very little prep time to the overall dish. I like how the vegetables really make the sauce taste less "canned" and give much more "body". The sausage was easy enough to mix in, but I couldn’t really taste it and it may not always be as available to me as the other ingredients.
I was wondering if I could get some more ideas on what I could add to improve my Spaghetti. The 2 cans/jars of sauce and the hamburger are important to keep because they are what make this so very cheap and easy. I am looking more for things I can throw in to what I already have. Either spices, vegetables, or other unique things.
Are these things that you are adding to the Prego?
