Recipe Notes

  • You could substitute ground turkey, ground pork or ground chicken for the ground beef. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the ground beef, onion and carrot in a skillet with a lid until beef is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. 
  2. Pour in the wine and cook about 2 minutes. 
  3. Add the tomato sauce, water and noodles. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until pasta is to desired doneness. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
