Description

A hearty and comforting pasta dinner for those last remaining chilly evenings of spring!

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Sweet Italian Sausage
  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 3 cups Tomato Sauce (homemade Or Store Bought)
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup Low Fat Milk
  • 1 pound Pasta
  • ¼ cups Fresh Basil, Chopped
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese, Grated (or More To Taste)

Preparation

Roast the sausages on a baking sheet in a 350ºF oven for approximately 20 minutes. Flip them over and continue roasting for another 20 minutes or until they are brown and the inside is no longer pink.

While the sausage is cooking, brown the ground beef in a pan on the stove top, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Add the tomato sauce, garlic powder, milk and stir. When the sausages are cooked, slice diagonally and add to the beef sauce. Simmer on low heat while you cook the pasta.

You can use whatever pasta you like but I recommend one that holds a thick sauce well. I used calamarata (a pasta with large wide rings that resemble calamari) but pappardelle or penne would also work well. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions, drain and add to the sauce. Toss in the basil and season to taste. Finish with the grated Parmesan cheese.
