spaghetti, linguini, or something similar.
Dash of red pepper flakes
Shredded parmesan cheese
optional, for serving
In a dutch oven or a large stockpot, heat up the olive oil over medium heat (about 30 seconds).
Throw in the minced garlic, diced onions, and chopped onions. Sprinkle with salt. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the ground beef. Break it up with a wooden spoon and mix with the carrots and onions. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the ground beef has fully browned. Leave the cooked off fat in the pot.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, beef broth, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Let it come to a simmer.
Break the long pasta in half with clean hands. Tuck the pasta into the simmering sauce using your wooden spoon, then cover completely.
Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring it every 5 minutes. Make sure to keep covering the pot after doing a stir. This will prevent anything from burning at the bottom.
Top with shredded parmesan cheese and fresh oregano, if desired.
The calories do not account for added cheese and are calculated with an 85/15 ground beef.
