An easy, great and hearty pasta dish. Portions can be easily increased even though this is for one.

  2. Add the chopped tomato, tomato puree and herbs, turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta following package instructions.
  4. Stir the ricotta cheese into the beef mix and serve this with the pasta, sprinkling with Parmesan cheese before serving.

This was very tasty. I used too much tomato puree (oops!), but it still worked really well. I got a "wow!" from DH :)
