lb ground meat (i use only ground turkey)
1 small onion chopped (i really use a couple onions b/c i am an onion whore )
3 cloves of garlic, minced (i use the minced jarred garlic b/c i’m lazy like that)
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained (i usually use the 28oz big can)
1 1/4C water
8oz tomato/pasta sauce ( i tend to put a bit more in, b/c i use extra veggies etc)
2 1/2C whole wheat pasta (i use whatever i have-usually a mix of penne and the curly kind LMAO)
1C FF ricotta (but if you aren’t doing weight loss, feel free to use regular ricotta LOL)
1/4C parm cheese
dash of basil and pepper (optional)
1) in large skillet, brown meat with onions and garlic, drain if you need to
2)add diced tomatoes, water, pasta sauce, parsley, basil, oregano and salt
3)stir in uncooked pasta
4)bring to a boil, stir occasionally.
5)reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until pasta is done
6)combine ricotta and parm cheese
7)sprinkle in basil and pepper to taste
8)drop cheese mix by rounded T onto pasta mix.
****i do not “drop”, i just mix it into the pasta.
****i also do not use the egg, you can mix it into the ricotta cheese mix, but i don’t like that idea, so i never do it LOL
9)cover and cook for 5min more
10)sprinkle with mozz cheese and serve. i personally just mix a bunch of mozz in b/c i love cheese
