Recipe Ingredients for Pasta: Southwest Skillet Ragu

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped (green, orange, or yellow okay, too)
8 oz. mushrooms, quartered
28 oz. crushed tomatoes, with juices
2 T. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt, to taste
1/2 tsp. cayenne (optional)
1 c. elbow macaroni
1/2 c. water (as needed)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Pasta: Southwest Skillet Ragu

  1. In a deep skillet, heat a tsp. of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink (about 8 minutes).

  2. Stir in the onions and mushrooms, and cook until the onions are soft and slightly translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the peppers, spices, and salt, and continue to sauté until veggies are mostly cooked (about 3 minutes).

  3. Add tomatoes with their juices and bring to a boil. Add the pasta. Let the water come back to a boil and then reduce the heat. Allow everything to simmer for about 10 minutes until the pasta is al dente and the veggies are cooked through. (If it looks like the liquid is gone before the pasta is cooked, pour in another half cup of water.)

  4. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and stir until the cheese is melted and gooey. Spoon into individual bowls, top with an extra sprinkle of cheese, and serve!
