Any meal that's quick, inexpensive, delicious, filling and makes for good leftovers (even when frozen!) is a winner at our house!
1 pound ground beef or turkey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 large onion, sliced
1 cup water
4 (8 ounce) tomato sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
12 ounces pasta, uncooked
Parmesan cheese, fresh herbs as garnish (optional)
In a large skillet with a lid, heat olive oil and cook garlic and onion until translucent. Add beef and brown (draining when finished, if needed). Add remaining ingredients, excluding garnish. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until pasta is tender and excess liquid is absorbed. Serve hot with garnishes. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
