You come home from work, no plans for dinner and you're in the mood for comfort food. What do you do? What DO you DO??
This may solve the problem! It only takes a few minutes to prepare (especially if you have ground beef frozen in 8 oz packages) and, if you have a small family, leftovers are great for lunch!
- 8 oz whole wheat pasta
- 1 small sweet onion, diced (~150g)
- 2-3 cloves garlic, diced
- 8 oz lean ground beef
- 1 – 10.7 can condensed tomato soup
- 1 – 15oz can of peas (not drained) OR 8 oz frozen peas and ½ cup of water
- 1 – 15oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- ¼-½ tsp black pepper
- non-stick cooking spray
Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the pasta per instructions on the package.
While preparing the pasta add the onion and garlic to a non-stick frying pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cook until tender. Add the beef and cook until brown.
When the pasta is finished, drain and return to the pot. Add the tomato soup, peas (with liquid or water), cooked beef, and tomatoes. Stir. Add spices to taste and cook a few minutes on medium heat while stirring.
