Ingredients

  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon diced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. Brown the ground beef and onion in olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic, basil, pepper flakes and salt to the skillet and stir until fragrant (about 1 minute). Add 2 1/4 cups of water, the tomatoes with juice, and the dried pasta. Bring to a boil; cover and lower temp to a simmer. Cook for 15-17 minutes or until the pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.

  3. Stir in the cottage cheese and half and half. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.
