Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 3 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots (about 2 large)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper
Garnish:
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Cook pasta in salted boiling water 10 minutes or until almost tender. Add asparagus; continue cooking 3 to 4 minutes or until pasta and asparagus are tender. Drain well.

  2. Meanwhile, heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; pour off drippings.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  3. Heat oil in same skillet over medium heat until hot. Add shallots and garlic; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add beef; toss to mix. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

  4. Combine beef mixture with pasta and asparagus in large bowl; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.
