    Easy Spaghetti

    Source of Recipe



    Uncooked spaghetti
    Hamburger meat
    Chunky spaghetti sauce
    Grated Parmesan cheese


    Large saucepan
    Microwavable 1 1/2 quart
    Waxed paper
    Long-handled spoon
    Container for fat


    1. Ask an adult to help you cook 1 package (7 ounces) uncooked
    spaghetti on top of the stove in the saucepan, following the
    package directions.
    2. While the spaghetti is cooking, with your fingers, crumble 1/2
    pound hanburger meat into small pieces into the casserole.
    3. Cover with waxed paper, curled side down, and microwave on
    high (100%) 2 minutes. Stir to break up the meat.
    4. Re-cover and microwave on high (100%) 2 to 3 minutes
    longer or until the meat is no longer pink. Carefully remove
    the waxed paper. To avoid steam, lift the corner farthest away
    from you.
    5. Put the colander over the container to hold any fat from the
    meat. Ask an adult to pour the meat carefully into the colander.
    Hot steam will rise so be careful.
    6. Put the meat back into the casserole. Stir in 1 jar (16 ounces)
    chunky spaghetti sauce.
    7. Cover with waxed paper, curled side down, and microwave on
    high (100%) 3 to 4 minutes or until hot. Using potholders,
    carefully remove the casserole from the microwave and lift
    the edge of waxed paper farthest away from you to let the
    steam out, then remove the waxed paper.
    8. Put the colander in the sink. Ask an adult to pour the spaghetti
    with the water carefully into the colander. Again, hot steam
    will rise out of the sink, so be careful. Let the spaghetti stand
    a few minutes to drain well. Shake the colander several times
    to drain the water more quickly.
    9. Serve the sauce over the cooked spaghetti and sprinkle with
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
