I put this together in 10 minutes for dinner last night. Then popped it in the oven while I ran over to the French Loaf to get some nice bread. Big hit.
Meaty Pasta Sauce
- 1 Cup Marinara sauce*
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 slice bacon, chopped into small pieces
- 1 sprig rosemary, chopped finely
Preheat oven to 350. Brown beef and bacon in an oven safe sauce pan until beef is no longer pink. Drain. Add marinara sauce and rosemary. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Serve over pasta.
*I like to make my own sauce by sauteeing a small onion, 1-2 ribs celery and 1-2 carrots (all chopped finely) in olive oil til soft. Then add a couple cloves of garlic, chopped. Cook for 1 minute. Add 32 ounces crushed tomatoes. Simmer for an hour. Portion what you’re not using immediately into 1 cup portions in freezer bags and freeze them for future use.
