Always a Crowd Pleaser

I don't know of many people who'll turn their nose up at a simple spaghetti with meat sauce. In an effort to make our grocery purchases stretch, I used half of the ground beef I usually use in my quick and dirty recipe and supplemented it with lots of shredded carrots and chopped celery. This is actually closer to an authentic ragu bolognese recipe which starts out by sauteing a soffritto of diced carrot, onion and celery. You can also substitute ground turkey, veal, pork or sausage and add some pancetta or mushrooms if you like. Use your imagination. This one is hard to mess up.
