Andrea's Ziti (invented for Rose's 14th birthday 2007)
Box of penne or rigatoni pasta
two jars of your favorite tomato sauce
one onion, chopped
three carrots, cut into small pieces
any other vegs. you'd like to add
1 cup Mascarpone cream
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 lb. grass fed ground beef
I use a slow cooker for this recipe. If you don't have one, use a large pan that you can simmer all the ingredients in for about 2 hours.
Combine ground beef, vegs. and tomato sauce in cooker
Cook at low for 4 hours, or on stove for two hours
One hour before you want to eat (cooker) or 1/2 hour before (stove), add cooked pasta and the cream and cheese to the sauce mixture. Simmer 1/2 hour on very low on stove or continue to cook on low in cooker for 1 hour.
