lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
tablespoon Italian seasoning
jar (14 oz) tomato pasta sauce
box Betty Crocker™ Hamburger Helper™ beef pasta
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz)
tablespoons shredded fresh basil leaves
In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, onions, carrot and celery over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked and vegetables are softened; drain.
Stir in Italian seasoning, pasta sauce and hot water. Stir in uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper™ box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 11 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender.
Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese and basil leaves.
- We used tomato basil pasta sauce for testing, but feel free to experiment with your favorite flavors of pasta sauce.
- Like a little heat? Stir in 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes with the Italian seasoning.
