  3. Add noodles. Stir until noodles are covered by liquid. Cover with a lid. Turn heat to low and cook 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in mushrooms. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add a small amount of water, if needed, to prevent sticking, no more than ¼ cup at a time. Stir well.

Tips

To reduce the amount of fat on the ground beef, after step 1 transfer mixture to a colander set over a bowl and rinse with hot water. Return hamburger mixture to skillet. Let fat harden and throw away in the garbage. Watch the video How to Drain Ground Beef.

Replace frozen spinach with 3 cups fresh spinach or 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots or other frozen vegetables.

To get all of the spaghetti sauce out of the can, pour the 1 cup of water into the can and swish around before adding to the skillet.
