1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 lb ground beef

1 oz. package taco seasoning

14 oz. can diced tomatoes

2 cups water

8 oz spaghetti, uncooked

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Add taco seasoning, diced tomatoes, and water. Mix to combine. Then, add spaghetti. Be sure that spaghetti is covered with the liquid. Bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to low and cover skillet with a lid. Simmer for 12-15 minutes or until spaghetti is cooked, stirring occasionally.

Remove the lid. Cook for a few minutes more or until excess liquid evaporates. Turn off the heat.

Add shredded cheddar cheese and cover the skillet with a lid again. Let the cheese melt and serve immediately.
