Yummy! Recipe calls for Fire-Roasted Tomatoes with green chillies, but to cut the spice level, I only used diced tomatoes w/ green chillies. Really quick and flavorful! Serve with whole wheat penne or bow-tie pasta.

Recipe Ingredients for Penne Bolognese (Flat Belly Diet)

1/2 lb ground beef, extra lean
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/4 sweet onion, diced
1/2 cup carrots, diced

10 1/2 oz diced tomatoes, with green chillies
3 tablespoons tomato paste

  1. Boil pasta separately, drain and set aside.
