How to Make Beefy Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown beef in a large pot or Dutch Oven or a large skillet on medium heat in 1 tbsp. olive oil. Drain off grease.
    Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil, onion and green pepper and cook until vegetables are tender.
  2. Add pasta, water, tomato sauce, garlic and salt. Stir.
  3. Cook, covered, simmering, for 14 to 16 minutes or until pasta is soft and has absorbed all the liquid.

    If it gets dry before pasta has fully softened, add a little more water.

    Bring to a boil; remove from heat.
