Pasta shells with ground beef is a comforting and satisfying dish that’s easy to prepare. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try: Ingredients: 8 ounces (225g) pasta shells 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 pound (450g) ground beef 1 can (14.5 ounces/400g) diced tomatoes 1 can (8 ounces/227g) tomato sauce 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon dried basil Salt and pepper to taste 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Instructions: Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta shells according to the package instructions until they are al dente. Drain the pasta and set it aside. Prepare the sauce: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.

Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until it is browned and cooked through. Stir in the diced tomatoes (with their juices), tomato sauce, dried oregano, and dried basil.

Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Let the sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Combine the pasta and sauce: Once the sauce has simmered and thickened slightly, add the cooked pasta shells to the skillet. Stir well to coat the pasta evenly with the sauce.

Add cheese and serve: Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the pasta and sauce mixture. Cover the skillet with a lid and let it sit for a few minutes, allowing the cheese to melt. Once the cheese has melted, remove the skillet from the heat. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

Serve the pasta shells with ground beef hot, straight from the skillet. Enjoy your delicious and comforting pasta shells with ground beef! You can also customize this recipe by adding other ingredients like diced bell peppers, mushrooms, or spinach, according to your preference.
