Cheesey Garlic Penne with beef and veggies

By 8:53 PM , ,

Mommy's helper! 
 So tonight's dinner was rather off the cuff. Pasta, meat and veggies, but how to pull those together?

Bring a large pot of water to boil.

1 lb frozen ground beef and 1 chopped onion into the dutch oven, on low with a little oil and water. Cover, and stir occasionally until cooked through.

In a very large saute/cast iron pan, cook 1 chopped onion, 5/6 chopped carrots, half a bunch of celery chopped, and several cloves of diced garlic in a little olive oil. Stir frequently, add salt to taste.
 Add 1lb pasta(I grabbed some penne) to rapidly boiling h2o. Cook according to package directions.

When everything is cooked, dump everything into the big pot you made pasta in. Also add 1lb grated cheese(mozzarella) and 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup(pretty much my secret ingredient for creamy cheesey sauce). Stir until the cheese is nice and melt-y and everything is all mixed up.

Serves 8 hungry adults when its the only thing on the table. Add salad and bread and your could probably feed 6-8 more people(if you force everyone to eat the salad).
Mix it up!

Sooo good!
