We eat spaghetti pretty often at my house, and it’s always the same old, same old. Even though we really like the same old, same old spaghetti, something different is always good for a change. Especially when it is as easy as adding one ingredient to a basic spaghetti with ground beef recipe. You won’t believe how easy it is to totally change up your spaghetti with a little cream cheese! I know what you are thinking: Cream cheese in spaghetti sauce? Could that be good? Only one way to find out. (Spoiler alert: It’s good!)
This go-to pasta dinner can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. Serve up a creamy spaghetti with a side of green salad and breadsticks.
Adding cream cheese to the spaghetti sauce changed it entirely, turning it into a creamy tomato sauce. I like when my dinner experiments have happy endings, and this one did. Allow me to introduce you to the Creamy Spaghetti Recipe. It’s a quick and easy pasta dinner, ready in less than 30 minutes. I sprinkled the top of our spaghetti with fresh green parsley.
