Pasta beef

Pasta with beef, also known as beef pasta, is a comforting and hearty dish that combines tender beef with pasta and a variety of flavorful ingredients. There are many different ways to prepare pasta with beef, but one popular version is a beef ragu served over pasta such as spaghetti or fettuccine.

To make beef ragu, start by browning ground beef in a large skillet or pot until it is fully cooked and no longer pink. Drain any excess fat, then add diced onions, garlic, and carrots to the skillet and cook until they are softened. Next, add tomato paste and cook for a few minutes to caramelize it and enhance its flavor.

Add canned crushed tomatoes, beef broth, and a selection of herbs and spices such as oregano, basil, and bay leaves. Simmer the sauce for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together and the sauce to thicken.

While the sauce is simmering, cook the pasta according to the package instructions until it is al dente. Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet with the beef ragu, tossing to coat the pasta evenly with the sauce.

Serve the pasta beef hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. This dish is a comforting and satisfying meal that is sure to please the whole family.
