One Pot Two Step Pantry Pasta with Ground Beef

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I was just thinking that I am the last cook standing to make this one-pot pasta dish. And honestly, the reason it took me so long is that I thought it would be boring.

But of course the very fact you are reading these words, it is safe to say, this is anything but boring. It is delicious, and the basic recipe begs to be played around with.

You can vary the amount of pasta used based upon your appetite or preference, As I said this most basic of recipes is so easy to modify. This dish is not heavy on tomato so if you have someone at your table who does not care for a lot of tomato flavor, this will be a favorite of theirs.

  3. One pot pasta dinner is such a great idea -- I too was late to party, but now I make all kinds of variations on this.
