How to Make Pot roast penne

Step-by-Step

  1. Fill a pot of water according to instructions on the pasta, add salt, cover, and bring to a boil while doing step 2. Add pasta and cook as directed. (make sure to turn it off and drain it if your other ingredients aren't finished when the pasta is.
  2. Dice carrots, onions, celery, and garlic. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in a skillet, Add vegetables to the skillet and saute on low/medium heat until tender. (Tender when you can stick a fork through the carrots).
  3. In a separate skillet, brown ground meat of choice. I season mine the way I like while cooking. When meant is browned add the package of seasoning mix and let it absorb.
  4. Combine cooked meat and vegetables in one skillet on low/medium heat. Add 1/2 of the hot water and allow to boil, stirring occasionally until it thickens. Slowly add the rest of the water and allow the sauce to thicken before removing it from the heat. (Feel free to add your favorite seasonings at this point)
  5. Add cooked pasta to the sauce mixture and stir until combined. Let sit 5 minutes to cool and absorb flavor. Serve immediately and enjoy.
