What’s your easy weeknight “go-to” meal?
Lately for us it’s been pasta. Tonight it was ziti with meat sauce. I think I’ve finally gotten the ‘recipe’ down pat. This did NOT disappoint 🙂
Pasta del giorno
The trick? Prepare right after you get home from work. Then sit back and relax, watch a movie and allow this to simmer for a good hour or two. Trust me, it’s worth the wait.
With some fresh mozzarella cheese of too, obviously.
And your favorite salad
Romaine, sliced pear & dried cranberries.
Spaghetti: making Thursday nights delicious since the days of the Roman Empire?
Ziti w/ Meat Sauce
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 1 large clove garlic, chopped
- 3/4lb local ground beef (I used 85/15)
- 1 jar 365 brand marinara sauce
- fresh basil, chopped
- 1 tblsp olive oil
- sea salt
- black pepper
Begin by heating the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and green pepper. Cook until tender but not browned. Add in the ground beef and brown. In goes the garlic too towards the end. Give the mixture some salt & pepper as well. Pour in the marinara and add the basil, cover and turn down to a simmer. Stir every 30 minutes or so until you’re ready to eat.
Boil pasta. Shred cheese.
HAPPY FRIDAY 😛
