This recipe was quick, cheap, and easy. We had enough for heaping portions for dinner and leftovers the next day all for under $20. Adapted from blogchef.net
- 1 package of spaghetti noodles
- 1/2 package of bacon, chopped

- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
- 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions.
- Heat oil in a skillet. Fry chopped bacon until crisp and set aside.
- In the same skillet, add the ground beef and cook until browned. Break the meat into smaller pieces as it cooks.
- Add the onion, shallots, and garlic, mixing into the meat.
