One pot spaghetti

1 tb oil
1 lb ground beef 
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 jar spaghetti sauce (650 ml) of your choice
2 1/2 cups water
8 oz. spaghetti broken into pieces
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

 In a large pot over medium high heat, heat the oil, and add the beef , onion and garlic, and cook stirring often, until the meat is cooked through.  Drain fat off if necessary.

Add the spaghetti sauce, water and spices and stir well.  Add the noodles, stir again and cover.  Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender and sauce is reduced to the consistency of your liking, 10-15 minutes.  You  may want to remove the lid near the end of cooking to reduce the liquid.

Taste, adjust seasoning, and serve.
