Serves 4 to 6
- 1 jar Monte Bene Garlic Marinara pasta sauce
- 1 lb. penne
- 1 lb. ground beef
- ½ cup Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
- 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
- 1 tsp. salt
Cook penne al dente, drain, and set aside. In a skillet, brown the ground beef on medium-high until cooked thoroughly, stirring to granulate meat. Drain the excess oil and then stir in salt. Add Monte Bene Garlic Marinara pasta sauce and butter. Bring to a simmer on medium heat, stirring constantly to mix in the butter (approximately 2 minutes). Stir 1/2 cup of sauce mixture into spaghetti to prevent the pasta from sticking. Simmer the sauce mixture for an additional 2 minutes. Plate the spaghetti and top evenly with sauce. Sprinkle with Pecorino Romano and serve.
