So this is my basic noodle dish. It’s thick and hearty, and best of all, there’s lots of it. So you’ll have leftovers to put away for those easy after work suppers.
First you start with the ground beef. Heat it up over medium heat in a frying pan. On the other burner you’ll start your sauce pot. I use Hunts Thick&Rich pasta sauce. Open two 680ml cans and pour them into the pot. Keep the sauce pot going at low heat.
While the beef and the sauce are heating up, I cut up garlic, olives, and jalapenos on the cutting board. As soon as they’re chopped up fine enough I add them to the sauce.
I also put quinoa in this sauce. For those who don’t know, it’s a grain like “super food” that I’ve recently been adding to my diet. I often have some already cooked and stored away in my fridge. It doesn’t take long to make and is easier to cook than rice.
Once the meat is cooked add it to the sauce and mix it in with the quinoa and other ingredients. Turn up the heat a bit and put a lid on it. Now it’s time to start the noodles! Do your pot of noodles however it tells you in the directions.
Once the noodles are ready, add them to the sauce, mix it around and serve.
I had mine with a glass of Stella Artois. It also tastes great with parmesan cheese The great thing about this is that it makes so much. I usually have a couple of bowls and put the rest into containers, to freeze and keep in the fridge.
