This easy Creamy Spaghetti is a quick dinner recipe my family loves! This is a great way to switch up spaghetti night. Serve with bread sticks or garlic bread and some salad. This only took me about 25 minutes to make and my family ate it two days in a row! Leftovers reheated well.

Creamy Spaghetti

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp each of paprika, onion powder, Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 15 oz Rao’s Alfredo sauce
  • 24 oz Rao’s Marinara sauce
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Dried parsley

Make Creamy Spaghetti

This is an easy dinner recipe, so there really isn’t much as far as prep work! Start by chopping an onion and measuring out your seasonings.

Start a large pot of water on the stove and cook the spaghetti according to the directions on the package.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add one pound of ground beef. Add the chopped onion and season with salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes.

Ground Beef

Cook until the beef is browned and drain any extra grease.

Add 1 tbsp of minced garlic, 15 oz of Alfredo sauce, and 24 oz of Marinara sauce. I prefer to use Rao’s Alfredo and Marinara sauce, but you can use any brand you like.

If you use a different brand of sauce I suggest tasting and adding any seasonings you think it needs.

Sauce

Stir everything in the skillet together well and add the cooked/drained pasta. Stir well.

Serve Creamy Spaghetti

Top the Creamy Spaghetti with some dried parsley and Parmesan cheese! I like shredding my own Parmesan cheese from a block, but any Parmesan cheese will work.

I served this with some bread sticks and some green beans. A salad or some roasted vegetables would also be good.
