I took out the ground beef from the freezer and set it out to defrost. I stared at it for a good two hours before I finally decided on what to make. This unbelievably delicious dish is incredibly easy to make. It's family-friendly and great for any day of the week.
Ziti and Beef
1 sixteen-ounce package of your choice of pasta
½ pound ground beef
1 small onion
4 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons oil
¼ teaspoon oregano, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt
1 six-ounce can of tomato paste
Put the beef in a large saucepan. Add the oil. Sauté the beef with the onion, garlic, and spices for 10 minutes.
Then add tomato paste; cover the beef with water.
Let it cook for 30 minutes.
· For the macaroni- boil water (add 3 tablespoons oil and 3 teaspoons salt). Then add the pasta. Ziti cooks in about 30 minutes. Because of different shapes and thickness of pasta, different kinds will take less or more time to cook.
