Beef and Parmesan Pasta
This is a recipe that I got our of one of my many cookbooks. It's a favorite bc it's very yummy and simple to make. You can use any veggie you like but we choose zucchini as the recipe calls for. I couldn't find any whole wheat bow tie pasta this time at the grocery so I substituted whole wheat rotini.
1 1/2 lbs of ground beef or ground turkey(guess which one I use lol)
1 (14 oz) can beef broth
1 (14.5 oz) can Italian style diced tomatoes
2C uncooked bow tie pasta
2C sliced zucchini (1/4 in thick)
3/4 C grated Parmesan cheese, divided
In a large skillet (or pot) brown the ground beef and remove from drippings, drain grease from pan. Return the skillet to heat and add the beef broth,tomatoes,and pasta.Stir to coat all of the pasta. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium.
Cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes stirring frequently. Add zucchini and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until pasta is tender(zucchini too).
Return beef to skillet and stir in 1/2C cheese; heat through. Sprinkle w/remaining cheese over each serving.
This is recipe is from the cookbook All Recipes, Dinner Tonight.
