Pasta is a family favorite meal. You can create infinite number of unique dishes with pasta. We love pairing beef with our pasta, whether it’s in the sauce, or by making meatballs. Ground beef is a great choice for pairing with pasta because it will cook quickly and you don’t have to worry about it getting tough. Add ground beef to fortify sauces and add some great protein. Look for lean ground beef to cut some calories from the fat.

Pappardelle is a very broad kind of fettuccine and you can simulate a similar effect in the mouth using my improvised broken lasagna pieces (careful, when you break them bits of shrapnel will fly everywhere). Of course, if you have real pappardelle, use that.
