Tired of plain old pasta with tomato sauce? Try Farfalle with Meat Sauce (recipe, meat)

Meat Sauce M Serves: 4
Rich and full of flavor, this meat sauce is easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. Use any pasta you like; but I prefer shapes with spaces that will hold on to the sauce like farfalle or fusilli.
1 large onion
2 large garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound chopped steak
One 28 ounce can organic crushed tomatoes-drained
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons dried basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 large skillet
  1. Peel and chop onion and garlic finely by hand or in electric food processor.
  2. Heat oil over medium flame in skillet. Sauté onion and garlic until onions are soft and translucent. Add chopped meat to pan in small amounts. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon. Break up meat as you stir so that the sauce is smooth and there is no redness left in the meat.
  3. Add drained tomatoes, tomato paste and dried basil to sauce. Stir well. Taste. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over any pasta, cooked al dente of your choosing.  Serve with a mixed salad and dinner is done!
