5 Minute Meal: Pasta Alternative & Meat Sauce

If you have leftover hamburger meat and want a quick and easy hearty meal, look no further than our take on 'spaghetti' and meat sauce! It's still just as delicious as a fully homemade meal but takes a fraction of the time.


  • Leftover hamburger meat

  • Rao's Homemade Red Sauce

  • Palmini Linguine (or regular pasta - spaghetti, linguine, and angel hair work best)

  • Crushed Red Pepper

  • Optional: Parmesan Cheese

Did you know Palmini "pasta" is a low carb pasta alternative? It's made from Hearts of Palm and is delicious! This recipe can easily be replicated with any pasta alternative or regular pasta, whatever you prefer!

How To Make:

  1. In a bowl, break up your leftover hamburger meat into small pieces. We used a fork.

  2. Add a jar of Rao's Homemade Red Sauce.

  3. Add the Palmini pasta into the bowl.

  4. Insert it into a pan. Heat it up for about 5 minutes, or until all the pasta and ingredients are warm.

  5. Once the meal is warm, add it back into the bowl or plate. Microwave will do too.

  6. Mix some crushed red pepper into the bowl.

  7. Optional: Sprinkle some parmesan cheese.
