This is a super quick pasta dish that the whole family loves. I often make a double portion of the sauce for the next day. Then I serve the sauce on top of the pasta instead of mixing it all together at once.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet. Add ground beef and cook, stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. Add drained pineapple chunks and leek and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Pour in about 1/2 of the pineapple juice. Season with curry powder, bouillon, salt, and pepper.

  • Stir in ketchup and tomato paste until well combined. Cover and simmer over low heat, 5 to 8 minutes. If sauce seems dry, add more pineapple juice.

  • Pour in cream and mix to combine. Cook for 2 more minutes.

  • Drain pasta and add to the skillet with the sauce. Mix well and serve.
