Linguine with Easy Meat Sauce

Nuvita Biscuits

For picky eaters, try serving this easy meat sauce over whimsically shaped pasta, like bow ties, rotini, or wagon wheels.


  • 1 (9-ounce) package fresh linguine
  • 1/2 pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup pre chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.
  2. 2. While pasta cooks, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, garlic, oregano, and salt; cook 5 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 3 minutes or until thickened. Serve over pasta; top with cheese and parsley.

    I have the flesh of the cod all de-skinned and ready to be cooked. Its not in fillets more just like chunks of meat. My only method of cooking is a frying pan, and I pretty much only have basic ingredients. (Onion, garlic, butter, salt, breadcrumbs, oil, vinegar, milk) I also have rice to cook it with, How would you go about preparing a meal out of this

    looking for pasta recipes not to make the pasta but to make the sauce, wouldnt mind having meat in it, fairly easy, would like to make my own sauce, few vegetables in the sauce would be prefered

    any good deserts would be welcome too!

    I am about to start a nice little family of my own. I have a 3 year old daughter and are now pregnant with twin boys! I’ve never learned how to cook. I guess I’m a slow student. I microwave very well. I can’t even make bacon and eggs! I’m pathetic, I know. The only time my daughter gets a home cooked meal is when we go over to Grandma’s. I’m going to be a mother of 3, and I don’t want to give McDonald’s all my money forever.(Eventhough I love the dollar menu!) Please help!!! I can’t be that much of a hopeless case. RIght???!!!
