Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken or beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente. Drain and reserve.
  3. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up as it cooks. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the beef to a bowl and set aside.
  4. Heat the olive oil in the same skillet. Add the onion and cook until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the garlic powder. Add the flour and cook for another 2 minutes. Slowly stir in the broth, and bring to a boil. Add the cream and the blue cheese, return to a boil, then let simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Combine the blue cheese sauce, cooked beef and cooked spaghetti noodles. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake until it is hot and bubbly, 15-20 minutes. Garnish with the chives and serve hot.
