Turn your kitchen into an Italian restaurant with our easy version of the classic Rigatoni Bolognese. This hearty meat sauce packed with flavorful veggies over rigatoni pasta will do you proud!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 pound rigatoni pasta
  • 2 tablespoons slivered fresh basil

What to Do

 

  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown beef with salt and pepper. Drain off excess liquid then add carrot, onion, green pepper, and garlic. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
     
  2. Add tomato sauce and oregano, loosely cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
     
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain and place in a large serving bowl
     
  4. Stir basil into sauce and pour over pasta, toss to coat, and serve immediately. 

Note

  • We think serving this with a little bit of Parmesan cheese makes it even more traditional.
     
  • Why not start off the meal with our easy version of a traditional Minestrone Soup!

Don't see a bullion cube in the recipe??????

ATTENTION; secret to cutting the fruitiness of tomato sauces! On the TV show Mr Food said offhand the CARROTS offset the fruitiness. Tried it and so it does without first cooling and reheating. Wonder if Grandma knew that.

what boullion cube?

Can we sub beef broth for the bullion cube,,, too salty.

Very good, easy recipe. I added another bouillion cube and served with shell pasta. This recipe is a keeper.

Great recipe and a good way to hide a few carrots from the kids. Was very tasty. Will definately make this one again.
