  • 1 pound Ground Beef preferably 73/27 or 80/20
  • 1 cup Ketchup plus additional for to top noodles when plating
  • 1 package Chili Seasoning I use Williams or Lawry's
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 16 ounces Spaghetti Noodles
  • Onions diced, optional
  • Shredded Cheese optional
  • Red Kidney Beans optional


  • Add ground beef, 1 cup ketchup, chili seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer 2 hours.
  • Cook spaghetti near the end of simmering time.
  • Warm extra ketchup in a microwave or a small saucepan. Additional Worcestershire sauce can be added to the ketchup if desired.
  • Place spaghetti into a bowl, top with ketchup and beef mixture. Sprinkle any additional toppings you want.
  • Serve with saltine crackers and grated Parmesan cheese.


Additional Worcestershire sauce can be added to the topping ketchup for additional spiciness. Use about 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce for every 1/2 cup ketchup, thanks to reader Jim for the ratio advice!).
