  • 2Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again. Set aside.
  • 3Meanwhile, in a medium skillet cook ground beef until brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. Set meat aside.
  • 4In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, carrot, celery, garlic, and Italian seasoning; cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add diced tomatoes and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
