I had an insane weekend and am working on a recap so today I want to share with you one of our favorite meals: cheesy, meaty penne pasta!! This dish is super simple to make and gets devoured each and every time. It's definitely kid-friendly and can be made quickly!
Ingredients: (serves 6)
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey or beef
1 box penne pasta, cooked according to package instructions
1/2 chopped yellow onions
4 garlic cloves, diced
1 jar pasta sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Shredded Mozzarella and Parmesan
Heat olive oil in saute pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until softened. Add ground beef/turkey and brown. Season with salt and pepper.
While meat is browning, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain.
Once meat has browned, add the pasta sauce, cover and leave on low heat.
Serve pasta in a bowl, Add meaty sauce and top with shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Enjoy with a nice spinach salad and garlic bread!
I love penne pasta because it is so simple to make and really feeds a crowd. Try this tonight in your home and let me know what your family thinks!
