OXO provided me with the products mentioned in this post, but the opinions are all mine.  

I have been wanting to try out a ground meat tool for about 10 years now but just have not gotten around to buying one.  My sister has one and when I saw her using it for the first time I was intrigued by how well it worked to cook ground meat.

When OXO asked if I wanted to try out their Ground Meat Chopper and Turner to create a recipe for them, I jumped at the chance!  Just after I moved to Fort Belvoir, VA from Bavaria, Germany, the package from OXO arrived with the Meat Chopper along with a Vegetable Chopper and Silicon Ladle and I knew it would be the perfect time to make my families favorite spaghetti with meat sauce.

(PS… None of my household goods had arrived at this time either, so please pardon the photographs not being up to my typical standard!  Living out of a suitcase has proven to be a difficult transition for my blog!)

This recipe is easy because it combines store-bought and fresh ingredients and is very flexible.   You can use any type of meat, sauce, canned tomatoes, or pasta with this recipe.  Onion and garlic are added for extra flavor but nothing else is needed!

In the picture above, you can see how well the OXO Ground Meat Chopper works to break up the meat into chunks.  I love a chunky meat sauce, but you can cook the meat to any size you prefer.

The OXO Vegetable Chopper with Easy Pour Opening is one of my favorite tools.  I’ve always loved a good veggie chopper, but my favorite thing about this tool is the opening in the back of the bowl.  This pour opening makes it so easy to chop then dump into the pan to cook!

Whatever can alleviate a few steps in the kitchen while I’m cooking… I’m all for it!

Finally, the OXO Silicone Ladle is the perfect size to scoop the finished sauce over the noodles.  Whether you’re making individual plates for your family or you’re serving the sauce at a potluck, the ladle is the perfect tool for the job.
