Faceless Frenzy: Skillet Spaghetti Supper

I am part of the AllRecipes AllStar program and one of our monthly challenges is to prepare and photograph a set number of "faceless" recipes from the website, meaning any that don't have a photograph associated with them. I dug through TONS of possibilities and decided this one looked like something my family would most likely enjoy and I could prepare it quickly for an easy weeknight meal! I did make several changes to the original recipe, reflected below.

It turned out really good! It was a quick and easy spaghetti recipe, easily tweaked to your personal flavor preferences depending on what seasonings you choose to use. It was super quick and easy and I would definitely add this in to the weeknight rotation. Would be great with a caesar salad or steamed green beans and some garlic bread!

Laying out the ingredients.

Sauteing the onions.

Mixing in tomatoes and seasoning into the beef and onions.

Adding in 1 cup of cheese.

Adding in the cooked pasta.

Added the final cup of cheese to the pasta mixture and letting that melt.

Plated up and ready to enjoy!

  2. Simultaneously, bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta according to package directions.
  3. Add 1 cup mozzarella to the beef mixture, stir in well and allow to melt. 
  4. Stir in cooked pasta, cover with the rest of the cheese and simmer on low until cheese melts.
