Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow-tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain off excess fat. Stir in garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are soft, about 5 minutes.

  • Place the bow-tie pasta into a large serving dish, and pour the ground beef mixture over the pasta. Sprinkle on the chopped basil. Toss lightly to combine, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.

I added zucchini but otherwise followed the recipe. My ingredients were very fresh tomatoes and basil right out of the garden. I found this dish lacking in taste and will not make again. Read More

Quick, easy, but as is a bit bland. Next time, I'll add some crushed red pepper and a bit more salt. Read More

we eat this in our house about once a week. i use the colored pasta and sometimes add a can of olives to it. but it's light, quick, and a hit even with the kids. i do use olive oil to mix everything together, it blends the flavors more (my own opinion) i also put in a pinch or two of crushed red peppers - just to give it a bit more kick... serve it with a green salad and maybe some sourdough bread and you are set!!!

Still cannot believe there is no oil or sauce in this which is a good thing for the calorie conscious. One can taste the "fresh" and maybe some sliced mushrooms and onions would only add to it. Read More

Husband loved this and it was so easy. A hearty pasta dish without a lot of heavy sauce. I added yellow onion to mine and instead of fresh leaf basil I used fresh squeeze basil you find in the produce area. I added the basil right at the end of cooking. I can see adding more veggies to to this as well. Read More
