This is a wonderfully average meal, a strong 3 stars. Don't get me wrong we liked it, but I would change a few things next time. I would make sure to season the meat first of all, salt and pepper. Maybe even add a little bit of pepper flakes. We think it could easy double the pasta for a full pound of beef. You could also leave it the way it is and use .5 to .75 pound of beef. I missed the part about thawing my green beans, and it did make it a little juicy in the end. I'll make sure to thaw them next time. I didn't have ziti, so I used whole wheat rotini, and it worked well. I did add extra garlic, because we like lots, and it still didn't taste like an over abundant amount. We will most definitely try this recipe again.
This had a really good taste. I followed the recipe except I used canned beans instead of frozen as my family doesn't like frozen veggies. Next time I make this I will not include the green beans at all. I didn't like them in this recipe but loved the taste of the rest of the meal. Made for Fall PAC 2007.
My family really enjoyed this. I didn't have ziti on hand, so I used fusilli.
