Ingredients

1 lb (450 g) lean ground beef
3 cups (750 mL) sliced mushrooms
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 chopped onion
1 tbsp (15 mL) dried Italian herb seasoning*
1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Milk
1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes
1 can (5 1/2 oz/156 mL) tomato paste
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 tsp (5 mL) pepper
1/2 cup (125 mL) freshly grated Canadian Parmesan cheese

Preparation

In large saucepan, brown beef over medium-high heat; drain off excess fat. Add mushrooms, celery, garlic, onion, herb seasoning, and red pepper flakes; cook until mushrooms are browned. Add milk and bring to boil; reduce heat and boil gently until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 min or until slightly thickened. Stir in salt and pepper.

To serve, spoon or toss sauce over 1 lb (450 g) of al dente cooked pasta. Sprinkle with Canadian Parmesan cheese.

Tips

*In place of dried Italian herb seasoning, you can use 1 tsp (5 mL) each dried basil, oregano and rosemary.

For the Adventurous: Add 1 cup (250 mL) white wine after cooking vegetables; simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed, then add milk and continue as above. Sprinkle finished dish with chopped fresh basil, oregano and / or parsley.

Healthy Eating Tip: Pump up your iron- Get a double dose of iron from ground beef and pasta. The iron in beef is easily absorbed by your body. By including Vitamin C as part of a meal, like tomatoes in this recipe, you also increase iron absorption from plant sources of iron such as pasta and cereals.
