1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can tomatoes (16 oz)
2 t. mixed italian herbs, crumbled
1 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper

1Shape ground beef into a large patty in bottom of skillet. Brown 5 minute or
until beads of moisture appear on top; Cut into quarters and turn. Brown 5
minutes more. Remove beef from skillet. Sauté onion and garlic in skillet 5
minutes or until soft. Drain tomatoes, reserve liquid. Brown tomatoes in same
skillet 5 minutes. This is an Italian sauce trick that mellows the flavor of the
tomatoes. Return crumbled beef to skillet with liquid form canned tomatoes,
Italian herbs, salt, pepper; simmer, stirring occasionally 10 minutes or until
sauce thickens. Cook farfalle following label directions. Drain and put on large
heated platter. Spoon sauce over top and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
