Description

Quick, easy and delicious, perfect for busy weeknights!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse Ground Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 2 cans (14 1/2 Oz. Size) Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 clove Shallot, Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • ⅔ cups Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ cups Half-and-half
  • 19 ounces, weight Frozen Cheese Tortellini
  • ¼ cups Fresh Basil, Cut Into Ribbons

Preparation

Add ground beef to pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often to break it into crumbles and brown on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan into a bowl, drain excess grease if needed, and set aside.

Add diced tomatoes, sugar, shallot and butter to pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook 20 minutes, stirring often.

Return browned ground beef to the pan with the tomatoes, stir in Parmesan, half-and-half and tortellini. Raise heat to medium and cover with lid. Cook for 5 minutes, stir well, lower heat to medium-low and cover. Cook an additional 5 to 8 minutes or until tortellini are heated through.

Stir in fresh basil and serve immediately. Enjoy!
