Beef, Mushrooms, & Capers Spaghetti

You want spaghetti but you’re not feeling the tomato-based sauce? Or let’s just say you don’t have any in stock. Conveniently though you have a can of cream of mushroom soup, a few button mushrooms, and while you’re at it why not throw in a few capers too. Yes, that totally happened in my kitchen.

Capers though? You really should grab a jar because it’s good with pasta dishes. You don’t need much when cooking and it lasts a while as long as you store it in the fridge. It’s that one ingredient that you forget you have and then suddenly remembers to throw into a pasta dish because it adds such delecious flavor. Trust me.

Beef, Mushrooms, & Capers Spaghetti


  • 1-2 pounds ground beef
