Bistro Style Pasta Napolitano

Tonight's Dinner 1/3/11

Super easy one pot dinner that tastes sooooo much better than you would think.  Something about having the pasta cook in the sauce makes this dish.  Really yummy, reheats perfectly so great for left overs and your whole family will love it.

*note: you can make this dish with ground turkey and whole wheat pasta and its still totally delicious.


4-5 T. vegetable oil
2 lbs of ground beef or turkey
1 large onion chopped
16 ounces of pasta (penne, fussili, rigatoni)
1 jar of pasta sauce
2 cups of water
garlic powder


Saute' onion in vegetable oil, add beef and cook until browned. Stir in pasta, sauce, water, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Cook over low to medium heat for 30-40 minutes until pasta is cooked.

  1. I just made this for dinner. It was delicious. I used ground turkey, so I had to add a little extra garlic powder and salt for flavor (or maybe I didn't add enough in the beginning).

    I will say, it made a lot of next time I will halve it....or just freeze the leftovers.

    A GREAT dish if you are having company!!

    Can't wait to try another

  2. Thanks Debby. You are right, it does make a ton. but I am glad you liked it!

  3. Sometimes I do the same exact recipe but I use 1/2 lb of pasta instead of a full pound. It still comes out great and it makes much less.
