Choose one of three popular global flavor twists (Italian, Mexican and Asian) for this complete pasta meal. It is simple to prepare in one pan, in under 30 minutes.

Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef, 93% lean

½ onion, sliced into thin strips

2 cloves garlic, minced

1½ tsps. dried basil [or 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil]

1½ tsps. dried oregano [or 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano]

4 cups College Inn® Beef Broth

2 cans (14.5oz.ea.) Del Monte® Diced Tomatoes [or One 28-oz. can], not drained

12 oz. dry spaghetti, broken in half

1½ cups sliced zucchini

grated Parmesan cheese, optional

chopped fresh basil, optional

Directions
  1. Combine beef, onion, garlic and herbs in a large deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until beef is browned. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Add broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in pasta and return to a boil; reduce heat to medium-high. Boil gently, uncovered, stirring frequently to keep pasta from sticking together. (Pasta may need to cook 1 to 2 minutes longer than package directs.) Add zucchini during last 2 minutes of pasta cook time.
  3. Serve topped with Parmesan and basil, if desired.

-One 28-oz can Del Monte® Diced Tomatoes with Garlic, Basil and Oregano may be used in the Italian One-Pan Pasta Supper.
