DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in skillet.
  • Add beef, carrots, tomatoes and onions. Cook until beef is completely cooked and crumbly; carrots will be soft, onions and tomatoes will be virtually non-existent.
  • During this cooking stage, add the water to make a "sauce".
  • Set aside when done.
  • While cooking meat mixture, cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Drain pasta and combine with meat mixture.
  • Tear up the 6 slices of cheese and stir into beef/pasta mixture until a creamy sauce forms.
  • It's done!
  • Freeze in small containers.
  • To reheat, defrost in refrigerator and heat in microwave or sauce pan. You can add a little water (2 tsp or so) to keep moist while reheating.
