Penne Bolognese

Penne Bolognese

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.
