The cold weather is fast approaching and a big bowl of spaghetti is comfort at it’s best on a cold snowy day. I seasoned the beef with taco seasoning to spice things up. I also added jalapenos, garlic, onions, hot sauce, fresh lime, etc. I also added some sour cream and it was delicious. Of course, I topped it off with a 3 cheese blend and served it with extra lime.
I absolutely loved this taco style spaghetti. I love Barilla spaghetti and their marinara sauce. I grew up on it, so when Barilla reached out to me to work together it was a no-brainer. I hope you cook the spaghetti al dente and use all these fresh ingredients I listed to make the most amazing taco style spaghetti.
- 3/4 lb Barilla spaghetti
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 jar Barilla Marinara Sauce
- 1 tbsp taco seasoning
- 1/2 tbsp hot sauce
- 1 lime
- 1 small onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 jalapeno
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 3/4 cup Tex Mex cheese blend
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rapid bowl.
While the water comes to a boil, heat a separate large pan with high sides over medium-low heat, add onions and jalapeños and cook until translucent.
Add fresh minced garlic, cook until fragrant.
Add the beef and cook until fully browned, season with taco seasoning, hot sauce, and fresh lime.
Add the Barilla marinara sauce, lower the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 30-40 minutes.
Stir in the sour cream and check for seasoning.
Add the spaghetti to the large pot of water and cook according to packaging instructions.
Place the cooked spaghetti in the meat sauce and mix until well combined.
Add the cheese on top, cover, and cook for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.
Serve with extra lime and hot sauce if desired, and enjoy!
